Watch the 92.7 WOBM-FM and Beach Radio 1160/1310 WOBM-AM presentation of “Hometown Heroin: A Townsquare Tonight Town Hall Event,” 7 – 8 PM in OCC’s Grunin Center on the Toms River campus. The hour broadcast includes Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato and Sheriff Mike Mastronardy; John Brogan, the Toms River dad whose Narcan rescue led him to become the most ardent proponent of New Jersey’s Opioid Overdose Recovery Program; Steve Willis, co-founder of Hope Sheds Light, connecting drug abusers to treatment programs; and Anthony Castellano, Vice-President of Substance Abuse Services for Preferred Behavioral Health Group.

WOBM News’s Vin Ebenau moderates the discussion, touching on the indescribable allure of opiates, the trap of addiction for pain-management patients, rooting out dealers and cutting off supplies, advances in rehabilitation for restoring and mending lives – and the role you can play in stemming the tide of drug dependence.
