Zanesville, Ohio - Network of Care (www.ohio.networkofcare.org) empowers people challenged with mental illness and substance abuse problems, their families and service providers by providing online access to services available in their community.

Rod Hollingsworth, executive director of the Muskingum Area Mental Health and Recovery Services Board announced that Muskingum-area residents have access to it. The Network of Care for Behavioral Health is an online resource that provides critical information, communication and advocacy tools with one point of entry.

The site enables consumers and families to find mental health and substance abuse recovery information, identify available services, supports and community resources, and keep personal records in a secure environment.
