AboutMilton Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition (MSAPC)
“Prevention and Recovery are the Bookends to Addressing Addiction”
Cheryl Bartlett, former State Public Health Commissioner
The Milton Public Health Department founded the Milton Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition (MSAPC) in the fall of 2014.
The MSAPC brings together a variety of community stakeholders, professionals, students, and town leaders to work collaboratively on reducing, preventing, and addressing substance abuse and related mental health challenges in our Town of Milton, primarily amongst youth. We recognize that our community is not immune from these problems, and we are motivated to face them together. We are also committed to making it easier for those afflicted with these disorders to get information about where to find help, and providing opportunities for them to contribute to and inform our work.
The abuse of alcohol and illicit drugs, as well as misuse of over-the-counter and prescription medications, affects the health and well-being of millions of Americans. Substance misuse frequently begins with youth. Nine out of ten people suffering from addictions started using substances when they were under age 18. Early substance use primes the brain for addiction later on.
The MSAPC is aligned with a growing national and state movement, seeking to bring community residents and leaders together to cooperatively address concerns about substance abuse and mental illness in specific local situations. Coalition leadership and volunteer members are committed
