A local law office is announcing plans for an event to educate the public about opioid and heroin addiction.

Officials from Schimmerling Injury Law offices are hosting the event on June 10 at the Double Tree hotel in Binghamton.

The presentation starts at 9 a.m. defining addiction, followed by “What is Recovery” at 10 and the feature of the day called “Shawna has a Secret” where participants go through Shawna’s bedroom to see if they can find how she hides her addiction. Truth Pharm is also giving a presentation along with the final presentation from 1 to 4 p.m. called SAFETalk that provides training for anyone interested in learning to identify and seek assistance for people at risk of committing suicide.
