BEREA, Ohio (January 14, 2017) – Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio was proud to partner with the national organization, Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.R.R.I.) to help support local police departments as they work with opioid addicts. VNA of Ohio provides educational training for officers on mental health and addiction.
P.A.R.R.I. has been adopted by 14 police departments across the state of Ohio including Berea Police Department.
After learning about the program on the radio, a piano instructor in the Conservatory of Music at Baldwin Wallace, Mary Dobrea-Grindahl, was so inspired by the program that she’s organized a concert to help support it. “We Do Recover” will be held on Sunday, January 29 at 3 p.m. in the Gamble Auditorium of the Kulas Musical Arts Building (96 Front St., Berea). Purchase tickets here.
