ASAP progress report set for tonight at Commons

The Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress in Bartholomew County will be giving a community update tonight at The Commons.

The doors will open at 6 p.m. and the program will start at 6:30 p.m.

ASAP is a partnership between the city of Columbus, Bartholomew County and Columbus Regional Health. The group is transitioning to a not-for-profit role operating the ASAP Hub, a centralized location where those with addictions can access all of the services they need to get into recovery. That center is 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.
