PHC, Breezy Point Join For Outreach
Msgr. Michael Curran of St. Thomas More’s/St. Edmund’s Parish continues a proactive approach to drug and alcohol awareness in the Rockaway community. Enlisting the collaborative assistance of Peninsula Hospital Center, Daytop and Project Outreach, Msgr. Curran has hosted several meetings for parents, teens and interested local residents. Straight talk is the theme of this community outreach workshop series that includes the dissemination of information regarding teen alcohol and drug abuse, types of drugs available to teens today and the potential for disastrous drug interaction, adult education, awareness and how to recognize the signs which signify someone may need assistance and/or intervention.
