U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown was in New Boston Wednesday for an addiction treatment and recovery roundtable at Stepping Stones of New Boston. The roundtable featured a number of representatives from around the community including medical doctors, faith leaders, elected officials and many more.

The primary topic of the roundtable was addiction and what’s being done locally to address the issue.

“This is an ongoing problem (and) we need a federal, state (and) local partnership. The federal government has made some progress or talked a good game,” Brown said.
