Mental Health and Addiction Recovery (Aired on April 20 and 21, 2019)

Andrew O’Grady, CEO of Mental Health American Dutchess County (MHA) and Executive Director of the Med-Hudson Recovery Centers, Inc. (MARC) returns to the RadioRotary microphones to tell more about those two organizations and also to help promote fundraising for MARC and for addiction/alcoholism prevention and recovery through the MARC Foundation. With about 200 employees, MHA and MARC make a significant impact on problems that affect about 1 in 7 of residents of the Mid-Hudson Region. The organizations, primarily funded by New York State, are unique in not requiring insurance for their services, which include many community mental-health caseworkers, family therapy, and a veterans program (MHA) as well has a crisis center for short-term addiction/alcoholism recovery, three half-way houses for longer-term residence, and more than 30 sober apartments throughout Poughkeepsie. The MARC Foundation, which raises money with an annual luncheon, a golf tournament, and appeals to donors, primarily provides supplemental funding for MARC, but also assists prevention and recovery efforts throughout the region.
