Wood County Addiction Response Collaborative (ARC)

Phone: (419) 373 – 3900

The ARC Program was established as a multifunctional program. It currently operates under two tiers to better serve the community. The first tier is the Quick Response Team (QRT) and the second tier is the Addressing Health Education and Diversion Program (A.H.E.A.D).

ARC was created to help assist individuals who have experienced opioid overdoses, substance abuse addictions, and families to create a bridge to recovery programs and resources. They work with many different treatment providers in the area, as well as throughout the State of Ohio to tailor the recovery program to what would best serve individuals and loves ones. They work diligently in service of the client, and will handle the sometimes daunting challenges faced with addiction, whether that be insurance or Medicaid issues, transportation, employment, and housing.

The ARC program is grant funded through the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, Wood County ADAMHS Board, and Wood County Health Department.
