Seven Quick Response
Teams Launch in 2017

The Quick Response Team (QRT) provides community outreach to those who have suffered an overdose.  Teams consisting of a police officer, paramedic and a counselor offer resources for overdose victims and their families, with the goal to connect them to treatment. 

Teams are now active in Cuyahoga Falls, Green, Barberton, Norton, Akron, Stow and Tallmadge, which is over 75% coverage of Summit County by population to communities that represent over 80% of overdoses in 2016.

More on how Quick Response Teams are making a difference on the ADM Board Blog.

 


ADM Addiction Resource Guide Now Available 

The ADM Board's Addiction Resource Guide is designed to educate readers about the disease of addiction and ways to combat it. Divided into multiple sections, the guide provides detailed information on prevention programs in our schools, safe methods for disposing of unwanted medications, tools for families to start conversations about addiction, and resources for those ready to seek help. 



The ADM Addiction Helpline (330-940-1133) is featured as an effective new service to connect people ready to face their addiction with the support and treatment they need. Also included in the guide are inspiring stories of neighbors who have battled addiction and won, shining a light on the hope and possibility of an end to this tragic epidemic.
