BRODHEAD - The first of three presentations of the HBO documentary "Warning this Drug May Kill You" will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Brodhead Public Library.

The times, dates and locations of the other two will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 16 at the Albany Lions Club and at 6 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Monroe Performing Arts Center.

The documentary provides an eye-opening look at an epidemic that is affecting communities across this country. It follows four families whose lives have been affected by prescription pain killers. Through the personal and emotional stories of people on the front lines of this epidemic, the film sheds light on the struggles of ordinary people who were prescribed highly-addictive opioid pain medications.

Nancy Richardson from Green County AODA will provide a brief introduction prior to the film screening. Attendees also will receive resources and information to assist with helping this epidemic in their community.

Following the HBO screenings, Aids Resource Center of Wisconsin will be providing Narcan Training from 6 to 7 p.m. Nov. 6 at the Brodhead Library and from 6 to 7 p.m. Nov.13 at the Green County Human Services Center in the auditorium.

These presentations are sponsored by Better Brodhead, Green County Human Services, and FAITH.
