Alliance to Host Attorney General’s “Heroin Summit” on the 29th
Governor John Kasich to Speak at Heroin Summit
Heroin is a menace.
The very first experience can transform a previously normal, healthy, well-adjusted teenager or young adult into an insatiable addict.
This rapidly expanding phenomenon is most prevalent in well-to-do communities where both means and access are readily available.
Heroin addiction is a community problem that requires the attention, effort and commitment of families, schools, churches, law enforcement, social services and the courts.
It cannot be ignored.
It cannot be suppressed.
It must be addressed head on and treated.
The Alliance members want to join in the fight against heroin addiction so that the communities, families and students they serve, can enjoy the type of wholesome, drug-free environment that stimulates learning and prepares our youth for success in life.
On Tuesday, April 29th, the Alliance, in collaboration with Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and the Office of Governor John Kasich, is hosting a “Heroin Summit” to acquaint representatives from Alliance communities with the horrors of heroin addiction and its impact on community life.
We invite all Alliance members, along with their community teams – elected officials, school administrators, law enforcement, judiciary, social service representatives, drug counselors, etc. – to join us for a three hour program that will address identification and treatment of users, suggested community organizational structures, existing A. G. programs and proven best practices.
Schools should be active partners in this collaborative endeavor and we ask that all member districts participate in this initial introductory event.
Our goal is to help you prepare to ensure that not a single life is lost to heroin in your community.
Shouldn’t you and your team be at the Heroin Summit on April 29th?
