The Greater Cleveland Drug Court held its first Community Symposium of the year, “Bridging the Gap: Opiates vs. Crack” on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at Imani Temple Ministries in Cleveland Heights. Approximately 175 attended the panel discussion which focused on the effect crack-cocaine has on our communities as well as on family life.
With the rise of heroin use, national attention to crack-cocaine is non-existent even though this drug continues to be a major problem. Click “Drug Court Symposium Draws Crowd to Discuss Crack Addiction in Opiate-Focused Times” for coverage of this event on Cleveland.com.
Resources for assistance were provided including the services and programs available through the Greater Cleveland Drug Court. Thank you to everyone who participated in this event.
