Community Involvement

Ohio ADAMH Boards are legislatively responsible for creating and maintaining a county hub program to combat opioid addiction.  The purposes of the program are as follows:

  1.  To strengthen county and community efforts to prevent and treat opioid addiction;
  2. To educate youth and adults about the dangers of opioid addiction and that negative effects it has on society;
  3. To promote family building and workforce development as ways of combatting opioid addiction in communities;
  4. To encourage community engagement efforts to address the purposes specified in 1-3.

The Gallia-Jackson-Meigs ADAMH Board is supporting and utilizing prevention coalitions in each county to accomplish these goals.  Each group is actively working to address the expectations set forth as well as many other prevention efforts in their respective counties.

Coalitions are comprised of individuals, businesses, agencies, organizations, schools, faith-based leaders and more.  All coalitions are open to the public and all are encouraged to attend and participate.
