Harrison County Prevention Partnership Hosts Town-Hall Meeting on Prescription Drug Use

Posted: Updated:

Prescription drug use is the number one substance abuse problem in Harrison County, and Tuesday night, community members and leaders discussed specific ways to address that problem.

Organizers said they hosted a similar town hall-style meeting last year to identify the drug of choice and asked those who attended this year to place stickers next to what they thought were the best ways to combat the problem.

"What we are going to do, we'll put them in our action plan, we'll put our resources together, we'll go through strategically and decide what needs to be done with what particular focus," said JoAnne McNemar of the Harrison County Prevention Partnership.

McNemar said a regional town hall meeting is scheduled for the near future for 13 surrounding counties.
