Forum on Drug Addiction Set For Tomorrow in Sandwich

heroin02SANDWICH – A local father who lost his son to an opiate overdose and has another struggling with addiction is organizing a meeting tomorrow to organize an effort to help fight the Cape’s drug epidemic.

Marstons Mills resident Tom Fagan is holding a forum tomorrow night at 6:30 at Sandwich Library, and is inviting residents and legislators alike to join.

He said confronting the Cape’s drug problem is deeply personal to him.

“I have another son, a younger son, that I want to keep alive,” said Fagan, “I want to make sure that there’s more treatment available for addicts that deserve it.”
