Saugus Council on Aging drug awareness presentation

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On Wednesday, August 9, 2023, the Saugus Senior Center along with the Saugus-Everett Elks hosted a drug awareness presentation. All who attended expressed how impressed and enlightened they were from the information and material provided by Saugus-Everett Elks members and drug awareness committee members. Gary Carter spoke about his own experience with addiction; while it was heart-wrenching, it provided us with valuable facts that could benefit all of us in some way, whether it be a family member or a loved one. We see a growing number of seniors having to raise or help raise their grandchildren, and this demonstration, most especially the “mock” bedroom of a teenager, while shocking, was extremely educating.
