John Lasher from the Community Foundation of Warren County came to speak to us about the Foundation and it’s focus.
In 1949, a small group of men and women thought that Warren County should have a foundation that would be able to provide support for education and various other projects for the citizens of Warren County. From its initial modest beginnings, this foundation has grown into a multi-million dollar organization.
In the last 5 years, the Community Foundation of Warren County has made distributions totaling over $10 million to local non-profit organizations and to scholarships for students attending colleges or trade schools.
Dr Mason Tootell from Warren General Hospital Family Medicine & Addiction Medicine spoke to us about additio
n and medication assisted therapy. Addiction effects every community at about 1 in 10 Americans have an abuse problem. The goal of any medication treatment is to stabilize a patient enough so that they can embrace and participate in recovery programs. Treatments must work hand and hand with counseling or recovery programs to create substantial recovery.
