The Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress in Bartholomew County (ASAP-BC) is a two-year initiative dedicated to coordinating a community-wide response to Bartholomew County’s growing opioid crisis. ASAP-BC is addressing every aspect necessary to a complete system of support, from prevention and education, to inpatient and outpatient treatment options, to resources for recovery.
Our goals are to eliminate the stigma associated with addiction, build an understanding of substance misuse as a public health crisis and to encourage broad community-wide support for the programs and facilities that are needed in Bartholomew County.
The ASAP-BC initiative is sponsored by the Mayor of the City of Columbus, Jim Lienhoop, Bartholomew County Commissioner Carl Lienhoop, and the CEO of Columbus Regional Health, Jim Bickel. Oversight of ASAP-BC is the responsibility of the Bartholomew County Healthy Communities Council.
The Substance Abuse Support System for Bartholomew County consists of ten critical elements essential to a comprehensive approach to preventing, intervening in, treating and providing recovery services for substance abuse. By building processes that connect the critical elements, we will establish a cohesive system which provides high quality support to those in need.
