RECOVER FOR LIFE
The disease of addiction has hit Franklin County hard and we are ready to recover. We know that recovery won’t happen overnight. It isn’t a one-time thing we get over and move on from, it’s a constant ongoing battle. That’s why we’re in this for the long haul, helping our residents recover to save their lives and stay in recovery for life. Together, we are recovering from opioid addiction as well as recovering from the stigma that surrounds this disease.
MORE THAN THE ADDICTION
Our perceptions of addiction fail to paint a complete picture. Everyone is more than their addiction. And everyone should have the opportunity to become the person they want to be. These profiles chronicle the recovery journey and paint a picture of a person’s identity even through the struggles of addiction.
RESOURCES FOR TREATMENT
Talking about and understanding opioid addiction is the first step.
Franklin County has the resources to help you start your recovery journey.
PREVENT AN OPIOID OVERDOSE
At least one Franklin County resident dies from an opioid overdose every day.
We can help end the epidemic and the stigma by getting NARCAN®, the opioid overdose reversal drug.
