SOS Berks is planning to publish a new issue of The Response magazine in December. The magazine, which was first printed in 2018, has been on hold since the spring, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, SOS Berks coalition members are working together to produce an issue that incorporates a print edition with an online component. The issue will focus on resources for treatment, recovery and prevention that are available in Berks County during the pandemic.
"It will provide an update on how to access resources during this new virtual environment," said Marcia Goodman-Hinnershitz, Director of Planning and Resource Development at the Council on Chemical Abuse, who serves on the SOS Berks editorial committee.
In addition to the magazine and online component, the committee is also working to produce and send out postcards and magnets with information on available resources.
