In the past week you may have heard about a high number of overdoses in downtown St. Louis attributed to K2, or synthetic marijuana.

Our organization’s outreach team went downtown last week to gather information firsthand. Unfortunately, this is not our first experience with synthetic marijuana, a similar situation involving “bad batches” of the drug impacted our community in February.

You may ask why is this important to a community mental health center?

The health of the people we serve is paramount to our mission and vision. We are focused on the recovery and healthy outcomes for every person with whom we are privileged to serve.
