A Second Strategic Planning Event
There were a number of people who expressed a desire to participate in the Strategic Planning Event that ADAMH held on March 16 but were not able to attend that daytime meeting. So we have put together a similar event to be held April 26 from 6-8 pm in Pickerington. Mark your calendars now to hold that evening open for this event. It is open to adults who would like to talk about the mental health and addiction needs in our county. You don't have to be part of an agency to attend. A light supper will be served.

Opioid Resources via Text
The opioid epidemic in our country has impacted countless families. Unfortunately, the needs of parents and caregivers are often neglected by mainstream care, and every day more families are turning to us for help and support.
In other words, parents and caregivers who are concerned with their son’s or daughter’s opioid use can sign up through the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids to receive text messages —informed by parents who have been there themselves — containing evidence-based resources, tips, skills, support and hope. Parents can also text “CHAT” to connect with one of their Parent Helpline Specialists at any time, if and when they’re ready.
