Ben is Back

Saturday, April 13, 2019

City Life Church, Dylan's Hope Foundation and the Leduc Community Drug Action Committee (LCDAC) will be hosting the screening of the movie Ben is Back and free naloxone training at the Leduc Cinemas on April 13. Starring Julia Roberts and Lucas Hedges, this movie paints the vivid picture of how the impacts of substance use disorder spread beyond the person who is struggling. This event is open to anyone over the age of 18 who is interested in learning more about the real-life truths of substance use disorder and how it is a health condition and not a moral failing.

The City of Leduc is dedicated to breaking down the stigma that surrounds opioids in our communities. We are committed to raising awareness of the unprecedented dangers of opioid use and  providing both harm reduction strategies and support to those that are using opioid drugs or who are affected by them. The LCDAC is continuously working towards solutions to the opioid crisis in the community. Until the end of 2019, the City of Leduc plans to build upon existing initiatives by focusing on drug awareness programs, social media marketing, media advocacy, and media literacy in order to raise awareness around the risks related to opioids and to help educate the public to further reduce the number of overdoses.
