ConVal Substance Abuse Task Force

17903424_1884958088413638_6085246000414793812_n copyThe ConVal Substance Abuse Task Force seeks to foster awareness and provide support for those affected by substance abuse and addiction.

The Substance Abuse Task force is a diverse group of members representing stakeholders from the high school, middle school, elementary school, physicians, parents, students, police officers, community members, administrators, and MCH.

In the spring of 2015, the Task Force went through a comprehensive and structured strategic planning process. The facilitator, Emily Daniels, spent a great deal of time building trust and a common language within the group, which allowed the team to have candid conversations about a difficult issue. In its first year (2015-2016), the Task Force co-sponsored several public awareness programs – including “High and Seek,” “Chucky’s Fight” and “Project Crash.” It also led an extensive policy review process which culminated in a new proposed Substance Abuse/Misuse Policy for the district.

For its second year strategic plan (2016-2017), the Task Force will address Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) as a means of accomplishing effective prevention and intervention.  The Task Force plans to accomplish this by raising awareness about the relationship between ACES and addiction, reviewing its intra and inter district communication practices, and piloting trauma informed strategiesto inner regulation.
