MGH Cares: Indiana Addiction HotlineNonprofit
The Grant County Substance Abuse Task Force consists of 125 people and 30 agencies, all of whom are very busy trying to make a difference on the substance abuse front. Positive changes have occurred in Grant County including a partnership between Grant-Blackford Mental Health, Inc. (GBMH), the Grant County Jail and MGH. This program initiates substance treatment and counseling with inmates while they are incarcerated to prevent relapse when they are released into the community. Marion Community Schools has taken on a student liaison to attend juvenile court with students in hopes of identifying issues that may be revolving around or eventually lead to substance abuse. James Luttrell, Grant County Prosecutor, gave a detailed explanation of the Family Recovery Court to address the common problem of multi-generational substance abuse and the ripple effect that can engulf the entire family. Also, Judge Dana Kenworthy was recently recognized by the state for her team’s work in this area in creating a national model.
