A special event in Niagara Falls will be focusing on the family and friends of people struggling with addiction.

Canadian interventionist Andy Bhatti will be co-hosting the free event with Cedars Treatment Centre and the Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation.

Topics will range from enabling, to trauma, to the impact of the cycle of addiction with representatives from the Hope Centre in Welland on hand to offer local guidance.

NHL Alumni and Toronto Maple Leaf legend Darryl Sittler will be signing autographs and taking pictures in exchange for donations to the Hope Centre.

It's happening on Saturday afternoon from 1 - 4 p.m. at Crown Plaza Hotel.
