Women in Recovery – a film screening with Q&A

September 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Lynn Murphy, mental health liaison for the San Rafael Police Department, interviews two brave women on their recovery journeys.

This film and Q&A were made possible by a grant from the Overdose Prevention Initiative to RxSafe Marin. The film includes personal stories by two wonderful women (Whitney Smith, and Lisa-Marie Riley) who agreed to share their histories. They did so for the benefit of other individuals with Substance Use Disorders (SUDs), families and friends, advocates, people working in the substance use field, and everyone who wants to explore this important topic.

We touch upon how Medication Assisted Treatment benefits people with SUD, allowing them to recover without the severe symptoms associated with withdrawal and to benefit from reduced cravings. And allow plenty of time for questions from the audience!

A brief, optional Narcan training will be provided at the end of the program with free kits of the life-saving nasal spray used to reverse opioid overdoses. If you cannot attend, visit rxsafemarin.org/naloxone to learn where to get free Narcan in Marin County. Questions? Email info@rxsafemarin.org.

For everyone’s safety, please wear a mask at this event. Thank you.
