The Paul Pratt Memorial Library and the Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition invite the community to attend an Author/Speaker Series in support of September -National Recovery Month. The team’s purpose is outlined in their new logo and tagline- Spiral Upward from Addiction to Healing. The team will host multiple events during the month to help enlighten and engage the public in this very challenging battle. Steve Kassels MD will speak about his fiction book, "Addiction on Trial: Tragedy in Downeast Maine”. This thriller, which culminates in a riveting murder trial, illuminates the societal discrimination toward drug addicts and examines common misperceptions about what drug addiction really is -a chronic illness requiring treatment. Kassels has treated many patients during his years of medical practice and is dedicated to his work in addiction medicine. He is a renowned speaker and has engagements across the US. Mr. Kassels offered to donate all of the proceeds from the books sold that evening to the Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition.
