Meth 2.0 “You can get better and help is out there!” Thursday May 24—6:00pm

Since this is such an urgent issue in our area, we will offer another presentation with a panel to discuss methamphetamine on another level. Please join as we listen to testimonials from recovering addicts, engage in a conversation about treatment and mental health in our area, find out how Washburn County Health and Human services can help meet individual and community goals and hear from providers who care for these individuals once they get out of jail or treatment.
