League of Women Voters to Host Forum on the "Heroin Problem in Darke County"

Heroin has become a big problem in Darke County, It has not only ruined lives but caused many individuals and families suffering from assault, robbery and murder resulting from the need of addicts to support their habits.

An informational meeting on the Heroin Problem in Darke County will be held on Tuesday, February 24 at 7 p.m. in Edison Community College, 601 Wagner Avenue, Greenville. This opportunity to become informed about this growing problem is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Darke County.

Panelists providing information are Police Chief Dennis Butts and Detective Jason Marion of the Greenville Police Department, Executive Director Cynthia Cook of Recovery and Wellness, Jodi Long from Tri-County Board of Recovery and Mental Health and Annie Sonner, Darke County Shelter from Violence.

These panelists will provide information on the problem of heroin use in our county, focusing on the physical, financial and safety issues surrounding the topic. The format will be informal and questions from the audience are encouraged.

The League of Women Voters hope families and friends of all ages will attend to be more informed about this growing problem that directly or indirectly affects all of us.
