Elkhart Center Participates in Opioid Forum at University of Indiana South Bend

by Juliana Dalessandro | Apr 23, 2019

The Elkhart Center recently participated in a community forum on the opioid crisis at Indiana University South Bend. There was a panel discussion along with resource tables and our Care Coordinator, Becky Acevedo, helped staff the table to share information about CleanSlate, our mission and how we are prepared to help those in need. 

CleanSlate participated in the resource fair and the auditorium for the panel discussion was packed with standing room only with at least 200 people in attendance.

There were other service providers there as well, such as agencies like the Department of Child Services and Narcotics Anonymous.  The panel had a wide representation including employees from the County Prosecutor's office, the Health Department, a Veterans advocate, as well as a someone in recovery.

"I think that events like this are important to draw in the community so that they can ask questions and see what their community is doing to try and help it's residents. I love attending these events, not only because we get the opportunity to get information in the hands of those that might need it, but also because we get to collaborate with other treatment or community service providers.

Sometimes we discover new resources that will allow us to help our patients even more. Last night we discovered a new counseling agency that is very affordable as well as a Sober Living House. We are now asking that the same group that hosted this event in South Bend (in our neighboring county) will host another in Elkhart!" - Marisa Nyikos, Center Manager Elkhart and Warsaw
