HOPE Program Scheduled

HOPE Program Scheduled

The Allentown Health Bureau invites the public to a 90 minute session on the HOPE program on Monday, March 14 beginning at 6pm in Allentown City Council Chambers.

Offered by the Center for Humanistic Change, the HOPE program – Heroin Opioid Prevention Education - was developed in response to the growing concern around the heroin and opioid epidemic in Lehigh County and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The HOPE program will help provide answers to:
• What is heroin? What are opioids?
• What are the signs and symptoms of someone using?
• What are the effects of use on health, relationships, and life?
• What are the local resources?
• Where can people go for help?

To ensure that enough materials are available, persons are asked to confirm their attendance by emailing Health Bureau Director Vicky Kistler at or by calling 610-437-7708.

Prospective attendees are asked to provide a telephone number so they can be reached in case of inclement weather.
