SOLACE will no longer be meeting as of Wednesday, November 13, 2019. SOLACE Lorain County began in 2012 due to the impact of the opioid epidemic. It was inspired by the SOLACE groups that formed in southern Ohio to provide comfort and support for families who lost loved ones to opiates and other drugs. The Lorain County group morphed to become more of a support for families with loved ones still in active addiction and in early recovery. The leaders of this group also poured their hearts into advocacy by manning information tables, telling their stories and comforting family members who didn’t know where to turn. While the ending of SOLACE is bittersweet, it is wonderful that many other supports have developed to meet the needs of families struggling with addiction, recovery and loss. A sincere thank you to all who were involved in SOLACE, held a hand, told a story, and shared strength. You paved the way. You reduced stigma.
