As opiate overdoses continued to skyrocket, Shawn Holt had been Maryhaven’s President and CEO for only months. Working closely with the Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County (ADAMH) and other partners on the front lines of the crisis, they created an innovative new treatment option to bring hope to clients battling opiate addiction.

“Some of these folks would be dead today if it weren’t for the center because of how rampant the crisis is and how prone people are to re-overdosing.” — Andrew Moss, Maryhaven.

Read more about this collaborative effort and what’s now the 55-bed Maryhaven Addiction Stabilization Center (MASC) on Columbus’ South Side.
