Walk in for Recovery is being held by the Columbus and Franklin County Addiction Plan which is working to address the opiate crisis by preventing opioid abuse and addiction, reducing the number of opioid-related deaths, expanding treatment access, and improving the safety of our community. Led by Columbus Public Health, the plan is a collaborative community effort of the City of Columbus, the Franklin County Board of Commissioners, ADAMH, and many community organizations and stakeholders.
