Who We Are
In Fairfield County, the backbone organization will be the Fairfield County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health (ADAMH) Board. Other key consortium members include New Horizons Mental Health Services, Ohio Guidestone, Fairfield County Job and Family Services, Fairfield County Major Crimes Unit, The Recovery Center, Fairfield County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, the Mayor of Bremen, Lancaster City School District, Fairfield County Juvenile Court, and the Mayor of Lancaster. As part of their participation in the RCOPR-Planning grant, Fairfield County consortia will ensure that they further refine and develop their consortia across the full continuum of care (prevention, treatment, and recovery) and develop more formalized structures for their collaboration (i.e., memorandums of understanding or agreement, governing structure, etc.).
