Kutztown Strong’s January Coalition meeting will focus on a presentation entitled “Addiction and the Criminal Justice System.” The presenter is Yvonne Stroman, Community Program Specialist for the Berks Council on Chemical Abuse.

The Coalition meeting takes place on Jan. 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the Kutztown High School Library. The public is invited to attend.

The purpose of the presentation is to inform the public about the workings of the criminal justice system regarding individuals suffering from addiction, including treatment options. The presentation is the first of what will be an ongoing series of presentations designed to increase community awareness and understanding of issues facing today’s youth, while focusing on Kutztown Strong’s mission of guiding youth towards more informed, healthy choices.

Future topic suggestions include the opioid crisis, vaping, alcohol abuse, healthy relationships, and internet safety. Kutztown Strong invites thoughts on topics of interest to the community.
