Our approach:

The City of Chelsea, in partnership with Massachusetts General Hospital, has worked closely with a strong oversight committee to build a comprehensive community-based, environmental approach to reducing substance abuse and perception of safety. In Spring 2013,  a new Manager of Community-Based Substance Use Disorders Initiative was hired. He is responsible for providing overall leadership to the development and implementation of a comprehensive city-wide substance abuse plan where organizations, providers and residents have a role.
