Peer recovery supporters are partnering with Portage County first responders to offer help to people who are struggling with addiction.

The Mental Health & Recovery Board of Portage County hosted an event for the city, village, and township leaders to learn more about the Recovery Outreach program.

Dan Meloy, founder of QRT National, shares his experience engaging communities in saving lives after overdoses. Recovery Outreach provides first responders the "opportunity to give families something called hope," he stated.
