Dee Lewis, President, called the meeting to order at 1:30 pm. The meeting was held  via Microsoft Teams.

The meeting was opened with introductions

Minutes of the April 4, 2022, meeting had been emailed in advance of the meeting.  There was one correction:  The date of the next council meeting was stated as May 3, instead of May 2.  James Akin moved to approve the minutes as corrected.  William Wells seconded the motion, and the motion passed.

Treasurer’s Report:  James Akin presented the Treasurer’s report, which is attached.  There was no change to the balances of the Taste account or the CD.  The beginning balance in the checking account was $11,963.37.  Expenses were $3,036.64 for payroll, rent, office supplies, and insurance leaving an ending balance of 8,926.73.  Dan explained the $806.00 charge for general liability, which is charged twice a year.  There will also be a charge for director’s and officers’ insurance.  Also, this month saw our annual $500.00 charge from Intuit for payroll software maintenance for Quickbooks.

Committee Reports:

Prevention Committee.  Chairman Laura Wathen reported that there will be a Prevention Committee meeting on June 6 at 2:20, following the Council meeting.  At that meeting, Doug Berry from Diehl Consulting will be our guest to present on data collection for our prevention projects and grants.

Law Enforcement Committee.  Chairman Daren Harmon reported that Dan sent out the April prosecutor filing statistics via email this morning.  For the month of April, the office filed 237 controlled substance felony cases.  There was also reports of a new unscheduled drug that has hit Evansville:  tianeptine, street name Tianaa.  It is being sold as a supplement by businesses that sell supplements; it has effects that are similar to opiates.

Treatment Committee:  Dan reported that a few members met prior to this meeting, but no formal meeting was held because Jackie Hughes could not be there.  We now have a date and location for the Faces of Change Conference:  Wednesday, April 9, at the Catholic Center.  Dan reminded treatment providers and treatment services providers to turn in their questionnaires with information to be published in a revised Treatment Resource Guide.

Screening Committee:  Kevin Groves reported that all 22 pre-applicants turned in grant applications by Saturday, April 30.  Dan has assigned each one to 3 grant evaluators.  Evaluations are due on May 13.  The committee will meet May 16 after the Executive Committee meets at noon in the conference room at 501 John Street.

Director’s Report:  Dan Miller reported on the director’s activities since the last meeting.  His written report is attached to these minutes.  In addition to the date for Faces of Change, Dan confirmed that the annual Race for Recovery will take place Saturday, August 27, at Garvin Park.

Previous Business:

  1. 2022 Grant Cycle: this was covered in the Screening Committee’s report.  If all goes as planned the Screening Committee’s funding recommendation will be presented to the Council at our meeting on June 6.

New Business:

  1. There was no new business.

Presentations:

F.A.I.R./Treatment Courts:  The Foundation Assisting in Recovery (FAIR) is the 501(c)(3) organization that applied for the 2021.  Offenders released from prison have  a high rate of recidivism.  Local drug courts have been able to cut that rate in half, and James Akin reported that Vanderburgh County Treatment Courts have been able to decrease the recidivism rate even more.  Treatment Courts utilize a non-adversarial treatment team.  The grant funds were used to fund drug screens for indigent participants.  Regular drug screens are necessary to keep participants accountable.  However, participants are required to pay for them, and many cannot afford to do so.  James reported on one participant who had the care of her grandchildren, which caused problems for her reporting for her treatment court obligations.  She could not afford childcare to assist when she had to go to court.  Use of the grant for her drug screens helped her to afford childcare for her court and treatment appointments.

Southwestern Behavioral Health:  Kevin Groves reported on their transportation grant, which they applied for to decrease economic barriers to treatment.  Through this grant Southwestern is able to achieve really good outcomes.  They track the length of stay, treatment completion rates, and the number of patients served.  The $4020.00 grant purchased 67 bus passes at $60.00 apiece.  This allowed unlimited travel for one month, with hopefully the client able to buy his own bus pass or secure other transportation after one month.  This was a well utilized program, and the funding from Substance Abuse Council was exhausted in February.

Southwestern Behavioral Health served 8007 patients in its locations in 4 Indiana counties.  It served 1114 patients at Stepping Stone in Evansville.  Of those at Stepping Stone, 906 were in residential treatment, and 508 were in Outpatient Treatment.  Those 508 patients were the patients eligible for the bus passes.  18% of all Southwestern Client are served at the Stepping Stone facility in Vanderburgh County.

Announcements:

 

Dee Lewis reported that the YWCA DV Shelter is doing various “Pop Up” Outreach sessions at several libraries, Tuesdays 9:00 to 11:00 am to answer questions about services regarding domestic violence and to help with Protective Orders.  They will also soon be starting on-line Zoom Pop-Up sessions.

 

Jane Case Vickers reported that Patchwork Central just finished its school year and was gearing up for its summer session.  To celebrate the end of the school year, they hosted a celebration and art show.  Every family of the children involved attended.  Registration is open for June 6- July 14 summer programs for students first grade and up, Monday through Thursday, 3:15 to 5:00 pm.  There are still available openings, and Jane will send a flyer to Dan for distribution.

 

Dan made the following meeting announcements:

 

The next meeting is scheduled Monday, June 6, 2022, at 1:30, at Central Library, Browning Room B.

Prevention Committee will meet June 6 at 2:20 in Browning Room B.

The next Executive Committee Meeting is Monday, May 16, at noon, conference room at 501 John Street.

Screening Committee will meet Monday, May 16, after the Executive Committee meeting concludes at 501 John Street.

Laura Wathen moved to adjourn the meeting; the motion was seconded by James Akin.  The motion passed, and President Dee Lewis adjourned the meeting.

The meeting was opened with introductions

Minutes of the March 7, 2022, meeting had been emailed in advance of the meeting.  Laura Wathen moved to approve the minutes as corrected.  Mike Gray seconded the motion, and the motion passed.

Treasurer’s Report:  James Akin presented the Treasurer’s report, which is attached.  There was no change to the balances of the Taste account or the CD.  The beginning balance in the checking account was $13,921.76.  Expenses were $1,958.39 for payroll, rent, phone/internet and office supplies, leaving an ending balance of 11,963.37.

Committee Reports:

Prevention Committee.  Chairman Laura Wathen reported that she was working on getting someone to present to the committee on the topic of data collection in our prevention projects.

Law Enforcement Committee.  Chairman Daren Harmon reported that he will send Dan the monthly statistics after the meeting.  There were 231 new felony drug arrests in the month of March

Treatment Committee:  Jackie Hughes reported that the committee met prior to this meeting.  Faces of Change is starting to take shape with a list speakers and topics.  The committee is working to find a location so that it can finalize a date.  The committee also working on the Treatment Resource Guide Update and will be sending out a treatment provider questionnaire to solicit information to put in the guide.

Screening Committee:  The committee met on March 21 and April 4, prior to this meeting.  There were 17 grant applicants with 22 pre-application proposals.  21 proposals were accepted and invited to submit an application.  One is still in process.  Grant applications are due into SAC office by midnight April 30.

Director’s Report:  Dan Miller reported on the director’s activities since the last meeting.  His written report is attached to these minutes.

Previous Business:

  1. Invitations to submit a 2022 grant have been sent along with the grant application. Grant applications are due April 30.  Dan held one grant writing workshop webinar on March 31.  Another one is scheduled for April 7 at 4:30 pm.  It has been requested that he hold a workshop during the day; and a daytime workshop will be scheduled.
  2. The 2022 Comprehensive Community Plan has been submitted to the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute. Dan believes it is a better product than we submitted last year, but he also sees areas where it can be improved.  He thanked everyone who submitted data and gave input into the document.  New legislation requires it to be updated yearly.  So from this point we start updating it again.  Dan has created a folder for data and update, and he plans to update an 2023 draft as he gets new information..

New Business:

  1. There was no new business.

Presentations:

Evansville Police Department:  Mike Gray reported on the Next Level Tech project which provided the drug task force with GPS tracking devices, noise-cancelling headphones to review investigative audio, a drone to provide surveillance during controlled narcotics purchases, digital recorders, and communications adaptors/charges for when the investigation takes officers out of Vanderburgh County.  The narcotics unit is operating at ½ strength in terms of investigators.  Despite that, it has conducted more controlled purchases than in the previous year.  In November, a publicized federal round-up of drug sources from Indianapolis was a result of an investigation started by Evansville and Vanderburgh County law enforcement detectives.  In that round-up, authorities seized 4 lbs. of methamphetamine, over a pound of fentanyl, marijuana, money and weapons.

The types of drugs they are seeing are fentanyl, which is fueling overdoses, deaths and youth substance use.  Fentanyl is being sought by users as a drug of choice, instead of being an additive or cut in heroin.  There is more methamphetamine; police are making more arrests and finding higher quantities of methamphetamine.  It is frequently cut with fentanyl.  Cocaine is resurgent; it is also cut with fentanyl.  Also increasing is traffic in counterfeit pills which resemble closely oxycontin or Xanax pill, but which contain fentanyl.  Person ingesting these pills thinking it is a controlled dose of an otherwise legal drug often overdose on fentanyl and frequently die.

Vanderburgh County Juveniel Court:  Heather Woods reported on the two family treatment court grants: one for incentives and training, and one for the FTC support group.  She echoed Mike Gray’s report insofar as many of the juvenile treatment court clients made the transition from heroin to fentanyl and are now, or presented as, fentanyl seekers.

The Family Treatment Court support group meets weekly.  Participation has been very successful.  It is fairly unique among Indiana juvenile courts and has been recognized as a successful program by the Indiana Office of Court Services.

In its incentives program, as the participant approaches graduation or successful completion of Family Treatment Court, the participant identifies a song that has been particularly meaningful for their recovery.  At graduation, the participant is given a token to remind him/her of that song and encourage continued recovery.  The training portion of the grant has enable treatment court team members to attend the Indiana Drug and Alcohol Institute and Officer of Court Services’ annual problem solving court conference.

Announcements:

 

Julie Robinson reported that TSA Pride Prom is April 23 and they seeking volunteer to help.

 

Kelsey Hillenbrand reported that Girl Scouts are developing their summer program calendar.  Girl Scouts have a variety of STEM and environmental-related activities and presentation of an hour and a half or longer to summer youth programs.  Contact Kelsey to find out more and schedule a program

The next meeting is scheduled Monday, May 3, 2022, at 1:30, at Central Library, Browning Room B.

Treatment Committee will meet on May 3, 2022 at 12:30 at Central Library in Browning Room B; Prevention Committee will meet after the conclusion of the May 3 meeting in Browning Room B.

The next Executive Committee Meeting is Monday, April 18, at noon.

Screening Committee will meet Monday, April 18, after the Executive Committee meeting.

Mike Gray moved to adjourn the meeting; the motion was seconded by William Wells.  The motion passed, and President Dee Lewis adjourned the meeting.

Committee Reports:

Prevention Committee.  Chairman Laura Wathen had nothing new to report.  The committee will meet next month immediately following the council meeting.

Law Enforcement Committee.  Chairman Daren Harmon reported that filings for narcotics crimes have increased.  The committee will meet immediately after this meeting

Treatment Committee:  Jackie Hughes reported that the committee met prior to this meeting.  Faces of Change will take place in the Fall either October or November.  The committee is lining up local presenters and will offer CEUs.  The committee is beginning an effort to revise the Treatment Resource Guide.  Members were invited to take a copy of the old guide with them and correct their agency’s entries.  We are also calling out for treatment providers and providers of ancillary services, like dentistry, to put their information in the Treatment Guide.

Director’s Report:  Dan Miller reported on the director’s activities since the last meeting.  His written report is attached to these minutes.

Previous Business:

  1. Pre-applications for the 2022 grant cycle were due February 28. A good number of applications were received in each category.  The Screening Committee will meet on March 21 to decide if the pre-applications will be approved.  If the preapplications are approved, the grantees will be sent an application on or before March 28.  Grant applications will be due April 30.
  2. The 2022 Comprehensive Community Plan draft had been mailed out prior to the last meeting. Copies are also available at this meeting.  All members were invited to comment and make additions or corrections.  So far, Dan has received minimal response.  The plan is for the Executive Committee to approve a final version of the CCP at its March 21 meeting, so that it can be timely submitted to ICJI by the April 1 deadline.  Please get any suggested revisions to Dan before March 21.

New Business:

  1. There was no new business.

Presentations:

Misdemeanor Probation:  Leslie Jackson gave the report on Misdemeanor Probation’s grant which was amended after it had been approved to include a Verification and drug testing supplies.  The goal of the verification officer is to reduce the number of positive breathalyzers through more frequent face-to-face meetings with probationers at their homes.  The drug testing supplies will be used to test probationers  to deter and uncover use of illicit substances before they lead to further legal problems.

Vanderburgh County Sheriff Office:  Hannah Duckworth, the clinical director, reported their grant which provided funding for low-income and high-risk patients in substance use disorder treatment.  Of 861 clients, 78 were “private pay” meaning that insurance or public assistance was not available to cover their treatment.  Of those 78 private pay patients, 42 have successfully completed treatment so far.
