The Hampton Community Opioid Partnership was formed to provide awareness of this critical issue, as well as resources within our own community that can be used to help combat the crises.
The partnership will host several summits each year, targeting prevention, education and community resources. Through our summits, community members will learn about appropriate ways to engage, support and encourage at-risk individuals, and how to help those who already are suffering. The next Summit is scheduled for Thursday, April 12, 2018, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Hampton Community Center.
7:00 - 8:00 p.m.
