Adams, Lawrence, Scioto Counties Opiate Hub Coordinator
The Adams, Lawrence, Scioto Co. Alcohol, Drug, Addiction and Mental Health Service Board is a government agency located in Portsmouth Ohio within beautiful Southern Ohio that provides the local planning and authority for individuals who are addicted or have a mental health issue. We help to provide funding for clients that do not have any type of payor source for their behavioral health issues. We have been assigned a new duty by the Ohio legislature to be the Opiate HUB for our area and need to establish this in our communities. We wish to strengthen county and community efforts to combat the Opioid epidemic that has plagued our area. We will need someone to help coordinate and educate youth and adults about the danger of Opioid addiction and the negative effects it has on society, build a relationship with others in our community who are trying to seek a solution to this horrific issue. This program will start July 2018 and last until June 2019.
