MOUNTAIN LAKES - The Lakeland Hills YMCA is holding "A Night of Conversation" on Monday, November 19 at 6:00 p.m.

The open discussion is presented by NJ DEA Agent Timothy McMahon. Introduction by Assemblyman Anthony Bucco, Guest speaker will be Eileen Wallin and resources offered by Saint Clare's Behavioral Health.

You hear about it, you read about it, but do you know that it is everywhere? Heroin, prescription and substance abuse is happening in your backyard. It's in your schools, it's in your town, and it might even be in your home.

A Night of Conversation is meant to inform you of the dangers of drug abuse and how to talk with your children (or your parents) about it.

Someone you know or even love may have already experienced drug abuse. It takes just ONE pill or one dose to begin the addiction. How did we get here? How do we stop it? How do we prevent it? Those questions and more will be discussed at this presentation. Joining us is Eileen Wallin, who experienced the loss of her son last year from a heroin overdose. Hear her story to understand the epidemic is closer to home than you might think. Light refreshments will be served.
