At the award luncheon, volunteer Board members, Board Executive Directors, and community leaders joined OACBHA in honoring CaSonya Johnson who received the Advocate of the Year Award.

Sue Shultz, Executive Director of the ADAMHS Board of Adams, Lawrence, and Scioto Counties shared, “Ms. CaSonya Johnson has been a great advocate for those who struggle with addiction by sharing her story and comforting families who struggle with a loved one’s addiction. She is also a shining example for youth in our community. She feels ‘everyone has a story’ and we need to share it.”
