Date:9/12/2007

- Presentations and panel discussions to highlight the growing local public health threat of addiction, hope offered by effective medical treatments -

LIVONIA, Mich., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/-- To mark September as National Alcohol and Drug Recovery Month, local Detroit-area community leaders are hosting a public forum to discuss addiction treatment options and resources for help. The forum will feature presentations by Donald Allen, Director of the Office of Drug Control Policy, local physicians, drug counselors and the Livonia Save Our Youth Task Force. As part of an education component, the public forum will present a 19-minute screening of this year's HBO ADDICTION project, a hard-hitting, 14-part, multi-media documentary series about this misunderstood medical disease. Following is information about the event:

Tuesday, September 25

6:30 PM

Schoolcraft College, VisTaTech Center

18600 Haggerty Road

Livonia, MI 48152

Media are invited to attend the forum and take this opportunity to give a local voice to the problem of addiction and the recovery solution in Michigan.

The forum will also spotlight the harmful impact of drug dependence, including opioids (prescription painkillers such as oxycodone, fentanyl, hydrocodone and morphine do you need to reference copyrights here? as well as heroin). Local problems with opioid dependence reflect the national data on this growing public health problem -- the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that approximately 5.2 million people currently misuse prescription pain relievers, second only to marijuana abuse. Additionally, nonmedical use of prescription drugs among young adults increased from 5.4 percent in 2002 to 6.4 percent in 2006, due largely to an increase in the nonmedical use of opioid painkillers.
