[ARCHIVED] Roadmap To Recovery Info


Roadmap To Recovery – Navigating Behavioral Health Resources open house event

The Marietta Police Department hosted the first ever "ROADMAP TO RECOVERY" community gathering Tuesday night September 10, 2019.  The meeting took place in the seminar room at the Marietta High School with approximately (100) members of the community attending.    

As your local law enforcement, we are often asked who people in crisis can turn to for help.  Did you know there are more than a dozen organizations right here in Cobb County that specialize in topics including but not limited to: Addiction, Recovery, Intervention and Mental Health? Several of these services are free or have sliding payment scales based on individual insurance or ability to pay.  Some organizations are geared toward the individual in crisis, others include support groups for families of someone in crisis.  You never know when you may need this information.  We encourage everyone to help spread the word about these amazing organizations right here in our own community. Representatives from more than (15) Cobb County organizations were present for the gathering and spoke one-on-one with attendees.

The Cobb Overdose Prevention Effort (C.O.P.E.) House (custom trailer) was also onsite for tours.  Each tour was hosted by someone in recovery who taught attendees warning signs that someone you know may be struggling with addiction.  A comprehensive list of all the agencies that attended and want to be contacted to help in the future include (no specific order):
