Community Safety Forum: Battling Addiction
More than 20 million Americans struggle with some sort of addiction. The toll addiction takes on addicts and their family members is wide ranging. About 88,000 people die as a result of alcohol abuse every year in the United States. Drug-related deaths have more than tripled since 2000. In recognition of National Alcohol Awareness Month, Will Allphin of Foundation for Recovery will highlight the dangers of alcohol and drug misuse and describe what it takes to maintain long-term recovery.
Each month, The Mob Museum partners with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and other local agencies to host Community Safety Forums – free public programs focused on pertinent issues that affect Southern Nevada. Thanks to NV Energy, pre-registered guests are given free admission to the Museum following the event. The Mob Museum will also provide a recording of this presentation on its website.
