Ohio Opioid Education Alliance to Hold Community Discussion on Opioid Abuse

-

Chillicothe Mayor Luke Feeney is inviting members of the business community and the community at large to a community conversation on the local opioid epidemic.

-

The Ohio Opioid Education Alliance has rolled out a new public education campaign, Denial Ohio, to prevent abuse of prescription opioids, and representatives from the group will be in Chillicothe this Monday to talk about it. If you’re a parent, business owner, manager or employee, the Mayor says this meeting is for you.

“Many people in Ross County know and understand the incredible toll that addiction has taken on our community over the past few years. Despite increased community awareness there are still many who don’t know that prescription drug abuse is a devastating problem, believe the problem is past us, or just don’t think it could happen to them or someone they love. Living in Denial could jeopardize the progress we’re making in the community.”

-

Representatives with the Ohio Opioid Education Alliance will meet with the community this Monday, April 8th from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the PACCAR Medical Education Center on the campus of Adena Regional Medical Center for a presentation and discussion. It’ll include members of the Chillicothe Ross Chamber of Commerce, the Hope Partnership Project and local law enforcement.

Refreshments will be provided.
