This Thursday, Nov. 14, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and the Berkshire Perinatal Opioid Collaborative are inviting pregnant and parenting families (including grandparents) affected by substance use to share their thoughts and experiences in a group about substance use supports in Berkshire County. The session will run from 4:30 to 6:30 P.M. at the nbCC Conference Room, 61 Main St., Suite 218, North Adams. It's dinner time for many, so free pizza will be provided. Participants also will receive a $75 grocery card.

This is part of an effort to improve the systems of care serving families with pregnancy or young children that are impacted by substance use. Your voice can help improve services in north Berkshire County. You can get in touch with Maureen at 781-227-7373 for more information.
