Our monthly meetings are free and open to anyone in the Quaboag Hills region with an interest in substance use prevention, treatment and recovery. We welcome your participation!
Our meetings are *regularly* held on the 3rd Monday of the month from 8:15-8:45 AM in the Main Conference Room at Mary Lane Outpatient Center, 85 South Street in Ware, MA. *Please note that there are times when we do flex our schedule due to holidays or scheduling conflicts, times and dates should be checked on the calendar below.
A typical meeting agenda includes updates and discussion about local and regional projects, ways to assess emerging trends or needs, and how we plan for and evaluate activities in the region. We discuss prevention work, local data, treatment resources and gaps in services, recovery supports, and activities such as outreach, fundraising and community education
We may have a guest speaker or ‘mini-training’ as part of the general meeting. At least once per year, we invite our state legislators to attend. We want them to better understand the region’s unique needs for policy and financial supports on substance use
