Partnership’s Town Hall to identify treatment choices, locations

MADISON – Partnership for a Drug-Free Community is sponsoring a Town Hall meeting in Madison to answer, “What is treatment?”

Partnership, along with its Recovery Resource Hub and area providers of substance-use treatment, will conduct the Town Hall on April 20 from 10 a.m. to noon at Madison Public Library, 142 Plaza Blvd.

Individuals can find different paths to treatment and recovery, according to Partnership.

“One reason we started the Recovery Resource Hub was because people in the community were spending countless frustrating hours on the phone and Internet trying to find a place for treatment,” Partnership Executive Director Wendy Reeves said.

“This process can be very complicated, especially for someone who doesn’t understand how treatment works. There is not a ‘one size fits all approach,’” Reeves said.

Sometimes, identifying treatment sources can be easier for people with insurance . . . but only sometimes. “Then, for those with no insurance or financial resources, a clinical assessment is required for state-funded options. The Recovery Resource Hub is available to help simplify the process and continues to provide free assessments,” Reeves said.

Fentanyl has grown to be a massive threat both locally and on a national scale. “With fentanyl hitting our community so hard, we thought it would be helpful to explain that there are many different types of treatment settings,” Reeves said.

The Town Hall meeting will provide information to help residents understand how treatment works, along with determining what type of treatment can be the right direction for individuals, friends or relatives.

The Town Hall’s audience will hear about the options for state-funded treatment, faith-based treatment, treatment for those with insurance and sober-living homes. Panel participants representing the different types of treatment options will include WellStone, New Season, His Way, Family Life Center, Bradford Health Services, Best Life Recovery, Oxford House and The Pathfinder.

Brochures and information from other area treatment programs also will be available.

Other Town Hall meetings will be conducted in Huntsville at Downtown Huntsville Library Auditorium, 915 Monroe St. SW on March 30 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and His Way Recovery, 582 Shields Road on April 6 from 2 to 4 p.m.
