Won't raise taxes!
We need your support this fall to pass our levy renewal! This levy will not raise taxes and funds more than 50 community non-profits and programs in Athens, Hocking, and Vinton counties.
The Athens-Hocking-Vinton Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board (317 Board) plans, funds, and evaluates a community-based system of care for individuals in need of behavioral health or substance use disorder recovery services.
In-person meetings have resumed as of June 2021. We ask that visitors to the 317 Board office abide by the following policy (Updated 8/09/21) for everyone’s health and wellbeing:
Please refrain from attending in-person meetings if you are ill or displaying any signs of illness.
Masks are required for visitors to the 317 Board office regardless of vaccination status due to the rising number of cases in our community.
We respectfully encourage those who are able to get vaccinated against COVID.
Please Note: Our Network of Care agencies are modifying services to meet the needs of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please call them if you have any questions about your services.

317 Board Virtual Annual Meeting
We are disappointed that COVID will once again prevent us from gathering for an in-person annual meeting and awards ceremony. However, we are so proud of the hard work and resilience of our local providers and coalitions.
So, let’s celebrate!

Ohio SPF Rx Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services, and PreventionFIRST! is encouraging the practice of safe disposal of unwanted over-the-counter(OTC) and prescription drugs. A Deterra Bag is an efficient way to deactivate medications and safely dispose of them. Using a Deterra Bag not only helps the environment by reducing the amount of waste that contaminates landfills and water systems, it also helps to keep individuals safe by reducing access to these medications.
