ASAP Board of directorsASAP Board of directors



The Agency for Substance Abuse Policy (ASAP), Lawrence County Division, met Friday, Jan. 17 at the Lawrence Co. Health Dept. to present the 2014 budget which has been approved.  Other items on the meeting agenda included the election of a new chairperson as well community updates and upcoming events.  

Angela Bramblett welcomes those in attendanceAngela Bramblett welcomes those in attendanceAngela Bramblett, Pathways Prevention Specialist, opened the meeting by welcoming everyone, and updating member information.  Lunch was served, and the meeting began.

The 2014 approved project budget totaled $16,232.64 with the 2013 carryover, and included monies for such projects as substance abuse treatment programs by Pathways and Cornerstone Christian Counseling, smoking cessation classes by LC Health Dept., and materials for AA/NA.

Other items in the budget included regular operation funds such as personnel, training, fees, rent, and other necessities.

Faith Frazier, former Director of the LC Health Dept. had held the position of Chairperson of the local ASAP board, but due to her resigning and moving from the area, the position reverted to Carolyn McGuinn, who was doing double duty, also serving as Vice-Chairman.  Dr. Shelia Kensinger, CEO of Cornerstone Christian Counseling  and Riverview College of Christian Counseling in Louisa, was voted in as the new Chairperson and will serve in that position until the next election.

The date for the 2014 Health and Wellness Expo was announced, which is set for Sat. April 12 at the Lawrence Co. Community Center.  The Expo is a popular event geared toward health and wellness in which many different vendors set up providing information, demonstrations and presentations on various health topics.  Carolyn McGuinn, Nutritionist with the LC Health Dept., said this year the Expo will include a 5K Run, raising money for 4H Camp.

The Expo will host free health screenings and a couple of new vendors will participate this year. Representatives from Hospice and then VA will be present.  

For vendor information, you may call the Health Dept., at 606-638-4389.  

The 'Build Your Nest Baby Fest' will be held again this year, although the date has not been determined.  The Baby Fest will be full of information regarding baby and parent needs, lots of prizes and giveaways.  Date will be posted when  announced.

Community updates included several programs in conjunction with the LC School Resource Centers including informative classes such as parenting, cooking, coupons, shopping, literacy, and a clothing giveaway. For more information on these events, you may email Noel Goble at kristinia.goble@lawrence.kyschool.us.

It was also announced that the Point Of Hope -- substance abuse recovery facility located on the Point Section in Louisa, is currently at full capacity with 14 people living in the quarters and participating in the program.  Also, Guardian Angels, an emergency housing facility is currently being built in Louisa and will hopefully be open sometime this spring.  These programs are from the Father Beiting Mission Center (FBAMC) in Louisa who are also seeking donations to continue and expand such projects.

'Stand Up For Children' will be held April 18, which is a child abuse prevention and awareness program.  More information on this event will be available soon.

The meeting was adjourned, and the next ASAP meeting was tentatively set for March 21, 12:00 noon at the LC Health Department.
