Hull Police to Co-host Viewing of Film About Youth Prescription Drug Abuse
HULL — Acting Police Chief Robert C. Sawtelle announces that the Hull Police Department, in conjunction with the Hull Alliance for the Prevention of Substance Addiction (HAPSA), will co-host a screening of the film, “If Only” next week.
The event will be held on Wednesday, April 27 at 7 p.m. at Hull High School, 180 Main St., in the auditorium.
Following the film, attendees are invited to stay for a discussion with the film’s producer James Wahlberg, Executive Director of the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation. Residents who are in recovery and family members of overdose victims will also share their personal stories after the film.
“The goal of this event is to continue to educate our community, especially our youth, about the dangerous reality of prescription drug abuse,” Acting Chief Sawtelle said. “We hope that this event will be well-attended and that residents will leave with a better understanding of addiction and how it has affected our community.”
