A Regional MRC Substance Dependency Response Team is being formed to work with people impacted by addition during disasters when access to homes, services, and substances are interrupted. If you would like to be on the planning group to develop team guidelines, please contact Corinne.
This poster on Continuity of Care for Opiate Treatment Program Patients During Major Disasters was featured at the recent conference of the Health and Medical Coordination Coalition (HMCC).
A very timely and important opportunity to support our Berkshire County Public Health Officials in effectively meeting the epidemic of Heroin and Opioid addiction. I think it’s fair to say that each of us knows people touched by this issue – it’s impact is far-reaching into all sectors society. The Berkshire County Heroin/Opioid Work Group being formed offers an opportunity for MRC volunteers to become involved in and important way while fulfilling the Medical Reserve Corps mission to build strong, healthy and resilient communities. Please see the attached meeting schedule and let me know if you would like to join the Work Group.
