Alcohol & Drug Addiction Services Board
To reduce alcohol and drug related problems by increasing community awareness, and ensuring the availability of effective education, prevention and treatment services in Mahoning County.
The Mahoning County Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board will be the leading advocate and voice for all individuals seeking alcohol and drug services through effective oversight, coordination, and planning activities locally, and state-wide.
What we do:
The Mahoning County Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board is a division of Mahoning County Government that was created in 1989 by the Mahoning County Commissioners. Eighteen volunteer members comprise the Board of Directors and are charged with planning, funding and monitoring substance abuse services within Mahoning County. The Board accomplishes this goal by contracting for treatment and prevention services at State-certified, private, not-for-profit organizations for direct and preventive care for individuals and families with addictive disorders. Services include a full continuum of outpatient, inpatient, supportive and prevention services.
Contract providers of the Board are as follows: Neil Kennedy Recovery Clinic; Meridian Services, Inc.; Youngstown Urban and Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Program; and Treatment Alternatives to Street Crime. Each of these providers offers “niche” services along the continuum in order to reduce duplication of effort. The Board also maintains contractual agreements with Turning Point Counseling and Help Hotline for a limited number of specialty services including services to adults and children with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. Over 300 individuals are employed within this Network of Care.
The Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board is funded by State and Federal monies.
