Sheriff: Update tonight on progress against substance abuse

Bartholomew County Sheriff Matt Myers is suggesting that you attend tonight’s County Council meeting, to learn more about the progress being made against substance abuse in the community.

Myers said that the Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress will be meeting with the council tonight to give updates on the community’s anti-drug programs and the operations of the ASAP Hub.

The hub is an outreach center located at the Doug Otto United Way Center on 13th Street, meant to help people get into recovery, by connecting them with community resources and programs.

Judge Kelly Benjamin is also expected to discuss the new drug court, the REALM program that is run by Community Corrections and the drug treatment program within the jail.

County Council meets at 6 tonight in the council chambers at the Governmental Office Building on Third Street. You can also attend virtually via the Zoom app.
