Douglas Administration Officials Holding Leadership Forums on Substance Abuse

Beginning in September, Agency of Human Services Secretary Mike Smith and Deputy Commissioner of Health for Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs Barbara Cimaglio are meeting with community leaders, treatment providers and prevention groups around the state to discuss substance abuse issues.

This series of regional meetings is taking place in September and October.

The information gathered at the meetings will assist the Secretary in setting priorities and making recommendations to Governor Douglas for the next phase of his D.E.T.E.R. [Drug Education, Treatment, Enforcement and Rehabilitation] Initiative.

The public is invited to comment on local substance abuse issues.
