Film Designed to Bring Communities Together to Confront Opioid Epidemic Coming to Cohasset
Cohasset High School Auditorium
October 20th at 7 pm
Free community screening of Jim Wahlberg’s “If Only”
The Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition will be partnering with The Hingham Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition to host a viewing of “If Only,” a short film co-written and produced by James Wahlberg, at Cohasset High School, October 20th at 7 p.m. The film was created to initiate a meaningful dialogue between parents and children, and within communities, about prescription drug misuse and opiate addiction.
“This film addresses one of the most serious health issues facing our society today. Addiction touches every culture, every family, and ultimately every one of us,” Wahlberg said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to create a project that informs, educates and leads viewers to recognize the warning signs of opioid use and to participate in a solution.”
A lively panel discussion will follow the movie. The panel includes Mike Duggan, a certified interventionist and founder of Wicked Sober, Lori McCarthy and Kevin Rosario from Gosnold Treatment Centers, Deb Flanagan, A Cohasset mom who lost her son, Jeff to substance use disorder in the last year and Cohasset’s own Dr. James Mensching, an ED physician with a suboxone clinic.
The event is open to the community free of charge. For more information about the film, including a trailer, please visit www.IfOnlyMovie.org.
