Helping the Community
Service Above Self
The Club distributed a brochure on substance abuse and resources, including opioids, to Suffield residents. It can be found in an insert in last month’s SO. Additional copies are in the library, police station, drug stores, and the schools. Suffield is not immune from opioid misuse.
