Film Designed to Bring Communities Together to Confront Opioid Epidemic in NH

Free community screening of Jim Wahlberg’s “If Only”

St. Anselm College will host a viewing of “If Only,” a short film co-written and produced by James Wahlberg, at NH Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College Tuesday, January 26th @ 7:00 pm.

The film was created to initiate a meaningful dialogue between parents and children, youth groups, and within communities, about prescription drug misuse and opiate addiction.

“This 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 discussion which includes Fr. Joe White from the Archdiocesan Addiction Recovery Pastoral Support Services of Boston, Brian Templeton, Ben Wasiniak from the movie, “The Triumph”, and others that will be here to share their recovery.
