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!

When and where is this year's Summit?

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