The panel presentation will be held Sunday at 6:30 p.m. In the downstairs meeting room of the Island Free Library.
The three presenters will be Rico Warren, Dr Michael Brownstein, and Dr Alice Brownstein. Rico Warren is a recovering addict who serves as a recovery coach with NAMI Rhode Island in Providence.  Michael Brownstein PhD MD is a neuroscientist retired from the National Institute of Mental Health, involved in several current drug research projects, and is a summer resident.
