Phoenix, AZ, June 15, 2017 (Newswire.com) - “After the huge success of our first open house, we feel that we can continue to provide value by offering a second opportunity to our community.” said Zach Lynch. He continued, “We want to provide the local treatment community an opportunity to join us and share best practices. This is yet another way for all of us serving the greater Phoenix area to increase our effectiveness in treating a disease which continues to worsen in Arizona.”
Arizona has seen up to a 44% increase in heroin related deaths in past years, making it a high priority for not only the state Government, but for the local community. So much so that in January, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an order to help those with addiction as they exit prison and come back to the real word. This order, essentially, will provide inmates with Vivitrol if they are battling addiction. He added, “Chances are addiction, in some form, has touched the lives of everyone here today. None of us can overcome challenges in life without a support system. Every day, we all rely on friends and family, mentors and advocates.” While The River Source agrees with Governor Ducey’s stance on addiction, they are focused on helping those that are already in the battle with addiction.
