YOUNGSTOWN -- Mahoning County Chemical Dependency Programs is now known as Meridian Services.
Meridian Services is a nonprofit organization that offers health care, housing, counseling, vocational development, prevention education and case management services to clients in the Mahoning Valley.
Meridian's new name reflects the organization's expanded services beyond the needs of the chemically dependent and a greater commitment to take a more holistic approach to community problems, said Martin K. Gaudiose, chief executive officer.
Meridian, at 527 N. Meridian Road, is funded in part by the Mahoning County Alcohol & amp; Drug Addiction Services Board, Mahoning County Mental Health Board, Ohio Department of Alcohol & amp; Drug Addiction Services, and the Children's Circle of Friends Foundation.
