2018 DBCH Public Forum on Services Needed for People Dealing with
Substance Use and Addiction

When:        Thursday, April 19, 2018          4-6 pm

Where:       DBCH Training Room, 230 North Road, Poughkeepsie (Entrance #1)

Come to our public forum and share your thoughts about the services offered in Dutchess County for people who are living with substance use and addiction. Tell us what works, and what services we can improve for you, your family, and the people you care about or serve. We need your input to help shape the County's service plans for 2019!

If you can’t be there in person (or would prefer not to speak in front of a crowd) you can submit your comments online for our moderator to share.


You can also learn about other substance abuse prevention events in our community by visiting the calendar on the right-hand side of this page, or by visiting the Council on Addiction Prevention & Education.
