What is the Ashtabula County Opiate Summit?
An annual event focused on helping educate Ashtabula County on the impacts of the opiate epidemic, and what we can
ALL do to be a part of building a stronger, safer community. This year’s theme is “Refocusing the Lens”. We’d like to
help shift the perception of this problem away from the hopelessness and negative and toward the possibilities and
potential that exist within our neighborhoods.
Who is invited?
EVERYBODY! We welcome anyone interested in learning and being a part of the solution. In the past, we've had
attendees who were concerned citizens, educators, friends and family of individuals suffering from addiction, elected
officials, treatment professionals, attorneys and Judges, members of the faith-based community, and representatives
from almost every profession imaginable. If you care about Ashtabula County, this event is for you!

The 5th Annual Ashtabula County Opiate Summit will be held on Friday, October 14, 2016 from 8am-3:45pm, at
