This past Saturday, May 21, Summit Psychological Associates participated in the Steps of Change event. The event, held at Bolich Middle School in Cuyahoga Falls, was sponsored by Ohio C.A.N. (Change Addiction Now). The event goal was to bring awareness of addiction and heroin related deaths in Summit County, and to educate the community about services and treatments available. Heroin-Addiction-OverdoseThe track at Bolich was lined with shoes representative of loved one’s lost to addiction.StepsofChange-individualshoes Participants walked ‘a mile in their shoes’ to pay homage to those who lost their battle with heroin addiction. Participants also took part in a Narcan class. Narcan is a potentially life-saving drug that can provide emergency help during an overdose or suspected overdose. Information about Narcan and its uses can be found here: http://www.narcannasalspray.com/
