The Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress in Bartholomew County will be giving a community update on Monday, August 26th at The Commons. The doors will open at 6 and the program will start at 6:30.
The Alliance is a partnership between the city of Columbus, Bartholomew County and Columbus Regional Health.
Among the update topics will be the soon-to-be opening ASAP Hub, a centralized location where those with addictions can access all of the services they need to get into recovery. That center will be in the Doug Otto United Way building on 13th Street.
The community update will also include a drug take-back opportunity, organized by the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department. You can turn in unwanted prescriptions and over the counter medications, however liquids or sharps will not be accepted.
And there will be information provided by other drug treatment and substance abuse prevention organizations. Nathan Walsh the ASAP hub manager said the Hub will be opening just in time for September which is National Recovery Month.
