JPHSA Rolls Out Med Drop Boxes to Keep Jefferson Parish Safe

Rosanna Dichiro, BHCS Division Director, joined Harahan Police Chief Tim Walker at the Harahan City Council meeting on Thursday, Sept. 19 to spotlight the medication disposal drop box located in the Harahan Police Department. It’s one of three new drop boxes JPHSA installed throughout the parish. Chief Walker touted the Harahan drop box’s 24/7 availability and urged all residents to take advantage of the unit. Dichiro discussed the goal of the initiative with the crowd. The drop boxes were made possible with grants from Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), support from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office (JPSO), and the cooperation of many community partners.

JPHSA Celebrates 30 Years of Service to the Community

Members of JPHSA staff and Board of Directors celebrate JPHSA’s 30th anniversary at a recent all-staff meeting.

Staff and members of JPHSA’s Board of Directors were on hand to help commemorate JPHSA’s three decades of service to the Jefferson Parish community at a recent all-staff meeting. In 1989, the original legislation creating JPHSA was enacted and the first Board of Directors was appointed. Since then, JPHSA has been driven by a mission to help individuals and families in Jefferson Parish affected by mental illness, addictive disorders, and developmental disabilities to live full, healthy, independent and productive lives to the greatest extent possible for available resources. In recent years, JPHSA has also integrated primary care into clinical services through a Federally Qualified Health Center with sites in East and West Jefferson. More JPHSA news is available here.
