A summit featuring speakers and information on support groups for recovering opioid addicts is scheduled in Frederick next month, according to a Frederick County Sheriff's Office press release.
Hosted by the sheriff's office, the county chamber of commerce and the county health department, the gathering will be free and open to the public and will run between 4 and 8 p.m. Thursday, March 28. The event will take place in the Null Building at the Frederick Fairgrounds, the release states.
