Friday, May 11, 2018

YOUNGSTOWN — The third community opioid summit hosted by the Mahoning County juvenile court and mental health & recovery board is taking place this morning at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel’s social hall.

The event previously took place at the Covelli Centre, but moved to accommodate more people. Today’s event is well-attended, as well.

The event will cover topics such as what addiction is, a law-enforcement perspective, and the treatment process, as well as comments from people in recovery and a question and answer period.

The free event runs until 12:15 p.m.
