Adena Holds Free Community Addiction Forum

Connection is the Opposite of Addiction. There are many local resources available to addicts and families wishing to connect; and people and organizations that are ready to help.

Join us for Addiction: Understanding Local Support and Resources, a free, community-focused discussion on the health crisis of opioid addiction; and the help that is available in our region. 

Hear from representatives from Adena Health System who will share how it is fast becoming a catalyst in saving lives, while fighting addiction. Also hear from experts about medication-assisted treatment; ambulatory detox options; and how the City of Chillicothe and Ross County are taking a proactive approach in reaching addicts and families following an overdose. 

When: Thursday, April 26, 2018 

             6 - 8 p.m. 

Where: PACCAR Medical Education Center 

            446 Hospital Road 

             Chillicothe, OH 45601
