Connecting Point ceasing operations

TOLEDO (WTOL) - Connecting Point, a drug and alcohol abuse rehabilitation organization with satellite offices around northwest Ohio will cease all operations.

Lucas County Administrator Mike Beazley told us Thursday morning that the county was notified early Thursday morning of the decision.

The decision will affect at least 150 workers at the main site. That number does not include any layoffs that may take place at satellite offices. The Source will provide workplace retraining. Also, several thousand patients will have treatment affected.

A Connecting Point employee who wishes to remain anonymous said there was a meeting convened this morning at St. Andrew's Church on Central Ave. to discuss the situation.
