RICHLAND COUNTY, OH - The Richland County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board held their annual public meeting on Tuesday evening, where area dignitaries showed their support for the achievements made throughout the 2018 calendar year. The meeting was held at the Dan Lew Exchange, where attendees were able to grab a quick bite before settling in for several speeches and presentations.

"This is something we do every year," said Joe Trolian, Executive Director. "It's a great opportunity to educate folks where we're at. We do a lot of work, it seems like, behind the scenes. We like to have as much transparency as possible and this gives us an opportunity... a lot of our collaborators and everybody come to this meeting and they get to hear first-hand exactly what's going on with the Board - some of the accomplishments we've had, some of the things we'll be looking to do next year."

Trolian said that one of the Board's biggest achievements was the building of a new detox facility within Mansfield. The project broke ground in August of 2018.

"The withdrawal facility is really exciting," Trolian said. "We have not had detox services in Richland County since, I believe, 2004. It's great to have that back. We sent an awful lot of people out of county. To me, that's just a real disruption in their lives and if we keep them close to home, we can keep the families involved and give them that support system that they need to get clean and sober."
