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.
Mass General Hospital is on the front lines of the opioid epidemic. The MGH Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) program goal is to have substance use disorders addressed along all levels of health impact; from primary community-based prevention to early intervention and treatment to chronic disease management.
Chelsea residents will have their say about the community’s overall health by completing a Quality of Life survey beginning today. The survey can be taken online or in paper form.
