The East Providence Prevention Coalition (EPPC) will host a viewing of “If Only”, a short film co-written and produced by James Wahlberg, at the East Providence High School Auditorium on Thursday October 20th at 6:00 PM. The film was created to initiate a meaningful dialogue between parents and children, and within communities, about prescription drug misuse and opiate addiction.

“The 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.”

The event is open to the community free of charge and will include a panel of experts and representatives from government, law enforcement, drug and alcohol counselors and medical professionals. Local community organizations will be present with resources and information for distribution.
