Addiction fair to offer help for addicts and their families

The city of Las Vegas is hosting a fair for prevention of, treatment of and recovery from addiction problems.

The fair is part of the Mayor Carolyn Goodman’s faith initiative which works to address key community issues, including addiction, job creation, education, homelessness and human trafficking.

The community issues were identified by 120 faith leaders who represent 70,000 congregants across the Las Vegas valley.

Since 2012, the leaders and the city have worked to create solutions to those problems. The prevention, treatment and recovery fair is one of those solutions.

The fair will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23 at the East Las Vegas Community Center, 250 N. Eastern Avenue.

The event will feature experts in addiction treatment and recovery along with a panel discussion with people who have battled addiction and their families. There will also be information on treatment programs, education options and a pill take back for people to turn in unwanted medication.
