Glynis Anderson is founder of Home of New Vision, which is hosting a public awareness event Thursday evening at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital with remarks from a nationally-recognized expert on addiction, treatment and recovery.

Anderson says a workshop Friday is designed to help those who've recovered from opioid addiction share their story of recovery. 

And on June 6th, Ann Arbor District Court Judge Chris Easthope hosts a seminar at the Holiday Inn on Plymouth Road in Ann Arbor.
