The Family Addiction Awareness and Prevention Project is hosting an event on June 1 at Salisbury University to raise awareness about addiction and recovery. BMX Pro (turned motivational speaker) Tony Hoffman will be speaking to the crowd about his own personal struggles with addiction. The talks will be directed towards high school students and their parents, and will cover not only Hoffman’s own struggle and recovery, but the general toll that drug and alcohol addiction can have on families. Local public health officials and law enforcement professionals will be joining the conversation, to let families know how this disease is affecting the community, and how to aim for prevention. This free event, aptly titled “Paths to Recovery,” will take place at 7 p.m., June 1 in the Wicomico Room at Salisbury University.and will be open to all members of the public.
