The Brattleboro Police Department, with the U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Vermont, is hosting a viewing of the short film Face of Recovery in the Main Reading Room at the Brooks Memorial Library on Thursday, August 29th at 7pm. Following the screening, there will be discussion with Justin Goulet and U.S. Attorney Christina Nolan, both featured in the film.

The film is about the journey and ultimate success in recovery of Justin Goulet. An athlete and powerlifter, Goulet injured himself in a weightlifting competition. Prescription medications provided pain relief for a time but Goulet eventually turned to heroin. As he became more dependent on heroin he turned to a variety of methods to gain access to the drug, eventually landing in federal prison, where his path to recovery began. Face of Recovery shares the unique relationship between Goulet and U.S. Attorney Christina Nolan, who prosecuted him. This program is free and open to all.
