Join ASSIST Avon Lake for a social gathering Wednesday, September 28 at 7 PM - 9 PM. You will meet community members who are making a difference in the efforts against drug and alcohol abuse/addiction, as well as supporting other families. In light of the BBC Documentary recently filmed in Lorain County, ASSIST Avon Lake will be sharing resources for support in addition to discussing your concerns from the documentary. We are also seeking people who are interested in volunteering. It takes a community to make a difference!
Assist Avon Lake will also be hosting a community forum on Tuesday, October 11th from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm to discuss the educational topic of the "Perscription-Opioid & Heroin Epidemic Awareness." This event is a FREE event that anyone is welcomed and encouraged to attend. Guest speakers will include Jim Coyne, Founder of Assist Avon Lake; Greg Zilka, Mayor of Avon Lake; Tom Stuber, CEO of The LCADA Way; Elaine Georgas, Executive Director of Lorain County Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board; Gregg Mehling, Lorain County Drug Task Force; and a representative from the Cleveland Clinic. There will be a host of informational resources tables that you will be able to visit before and after the event.
We would love to SEE you and HEAR from you! Your concerns and ideas are crucial to keeping the lines of communication open as our community effort moves forward.
All meetings are at 6:30 p.m. in the Commons.
