Fayette County Memorial Hospital is bringing a special program to Fayette
County to help adults identify the signs of drug and alcohol use in young
people. Can You See Me Now? is a program of HART (Health Awareness &
Recovery Together) Hilliard and features a teen bedroom where adults learn
to identify potential warning signs of drug and alcohol use and risky
behavior. Guests will get to walk through the simulated teen bedroom to
try and spot the signs of drug and alcohol use and will hear from local
law enforcement officials and first responders about what they are seeing
now in regard to substance abuse in the community.
The event will take place on Wednesday, November 7th, 6:30pm at Liberty Hall and is free to the public, but is restricted to
persons over 18 years of age only.
HART Hilliard is a non-profit group made up of concerned community members
who started the organization in 2015. Spurred by the heroine epidemic,
the group has expanded its reach to cover all types of substance abuse.
The goal of the organization is to educate parents and the community about
drug and alcohol use. CYSMN was initially done jointly with the Hilliard
Police Department and Hilliard City Schools. Since its inception they
have presented the Can You See Me Now? program 15 times with more scheduled
in the coming year.
A variety of local resources and drug abuse counseling services will be
on hand after the event in the lobby of the Liberty Hall. Organizations
included are:, Fayette Recovery, Faith in Recovery, Fayette County Prevention
Coalition, Fayette County Public Health, Resurrection Recovery, and Scioto
Paint Valley ADAMH.
