Fentanyl and Families in Harm's Way

Mr. Roy Peet Poillon, is a graduate of the Ohio State University Fischer School of Business and served as an Officer in the United States Army, Field Artillery.  He had a successful career in business management modeling disease management services for chronic diseases. Then in 2005 Mr. Poillon designed an international network of hospitals providing access to general elective surgery for the under-insured. From this experience he has founded an education charity non-profit 501c3 “Families Impacted by Opioids”, creating a learning center model for family members living with someone who has a substance use disorder. 

As a Ohio state licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant and Certified Mental Health Coach, he provides volunteer services at a family pregnancy crises center.  He will speak on the impact of this disease in the family system,  identify areas of developing a new delivery system of services for these families and give the topic air for an open discussion.  The audience will leave with a stronger understanding of the family dynamics in addiction, the key issues they face and how they can approach its impact both as a family and community. He believes knowledge is empowering and an empowered family is unstoppable. Our community needs unstoppable families if they are to survive this journey.
