Community-Based Programs 

Drug addiction has touched nearly every person in our community. We are in the midst of an epidemic of substance abuse and overdoses that is unprecedented. Family Recovery Center has added new programs to serve those who are struggling in Columbiana and Jefferson Counties.

Project Dawn

Naloxone kits are distributed the second Wednesday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m. or by appointment at our Lisbon office, 964 N. Market St. and Monday - Friday from 8 to 3 p.m. at our Steubenville office, 1010 N. Sixth St. Businesses can arrange for on-site training.

Project Dawn - Naloxone Mail Order Program

Family Recovery Center has launched a naloxone mail order program. Ohio residents are eligible to receive a FREE naloxone kit via mail order distribution. Naloxone, or Narcan nasal spray, is a medication that can block the effects of opioids and reverse an overdose. Participants must fill out the request form in order to receive a kit in the mail. The anonymous form will take no more than 5-7 minutes; with a training video that is 16 minutes in length.
