Free substance use events & workshop

WILMINGTON- Voices of Hope, a grassroots group supporting people impacted by substance use, is hosting two free  events in April.
The first is a film showing and discussion, “Uprooting Addiction: Healing From the Ground Up,” on Thursday, April 27, at 5:30 pm at the Old School Community Center,1 School Street.
The filmmakers will be present to share an innovative retreat where addiction and trauma counselor Hope Payson and six people (including Daryl McGraw) from varying walks of life — each affected by childhood trauma — come together to share their stories, emerging from darkness through community, connection, and compassion. All are welcome to this important film about trauma, addiction, and recovery. Snacks will be provided.
On Friday, April 28, from 9 am to noon, Voices will host a free workshop and lunch. The workshop will explore the interpersonal, cultural, and traumatic roots of addiction including intergenerational trauma, oppression, racism, and stigma. Learn how addiction and trauma impact the brain and how trauma-informed interventions and addressing roots of addiction can support recovery.
RSVP in advance at The workshop will be held at 18 Beaver Street (Old Firehouse).
