Lunch and Learn with Sheriff Lemma
Time & Location
About the Event
Flagler OARS presents SHERIFF DENNIS LEMMA as he explains the innovations of hope in Seminole County. One program, the in-custody substance use disorder treatment program, has a waitlist that has grown to the double digits, while at least two inmates have elected to stay incarcerated instead of being released from jail — just to stay in the program!
Sheriff Lemma is dedicated in his efforts to reduce the impact of opioid addiction and has been recognized for his approach to recovery. In January 2019, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody named Sheriff Dennis Lemma chair of her Transition Advisory Committee Working Group on Opioid Abuse. He also serves as Chair on First Lady Casey Desantis’ drug abuse and prevention panel.
