MACo’s Substance Abuse Summit
June 12, 2014
9:30 am—3:30 pm
One Seahawk Drive, North East, MD 21901
Sponsored by Cecil College
Substance abuse – for prescription and non-prescription opioids – has escalated in Maryland, threatening urban and rural communities throughout the State.
Counties are working to curb this epidemic with responses from within their own jurisdictions and at the state level. Addressing the prevention, identification, treatment, and community ramifications of substance abuse requires collaboration among many different departments. Executive leadership and support from public safety, law enforcement, health, and social services branches of government, along with private and nonprofit providers are all needed for an effective solution.
Learn about what’s being done in Maryland to address this epidemic and what resources are available to you and your county; collaborate with stakeholders who—like you—are working to prevent substance abuse in Maryland.
