After a break during the pandemic, the Greenbrier County CARxE Coalition will host a revitalization meeting from 9-11 a.m., Sept. 30, at the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM) Clingman Center for Community Engagement in downtown Lewisburg.
The CARxE Coalition is Greenbrier County’s Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition and members include health care and social work professionals, law enforcement personnel, elected officials, community leaders and members of the faith community, as well as those who have personal experiences with substance misuse.
Members look forward to collaborating on new initiatives to improve the health and well-being of the local community.
The group most recently worked to develop the Prescription Opioid and Heroin Awareness Toolkit, which educates the public about the opioid epidemic, provides local resources to families, organizations and those battling addiction, and raises awareness in the community of the substance misuse epidemic. The toolkit was then adapted statewide to benefit all areas of West Virginia.
The organization formed in August 2012.
Anyone interested in making a positive difference through connecting multiple community sectors and sharing resources is encouraged to attend the meeting.
