We believe our future is dependent upon the well-being of our families.
The Mental Health, Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Board of Putnam County.
Formally the “648 Board”, The Mental Health, Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Board of Putnam County was formed in accordance with state statute in the late 60’s. The Board members are made up of volunteers from Putnam County only. The volunteers are appointed by the County Commissioners and the Ohio Department of Mental Health Addiction Services.
The Board is the governing authority for the disbursement of federal, state, and local dollars for the purposes of mental health & drug and alcohol treatment and prevention. The priorities are developed by the Board to meet the local needs of our community.
The Board meets monthly to fulfill our county mission. From this mission statement goals are established to develop appropriate cost effective mental health and recovery services for those in need in Putnam County.
Ohio’s Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services Boards are the “HUB” of the local Recovery-Oriented System of Care.

In order to meet their statutory duties, Boards are responsible for the following:
- Complete Continuum of Care
