Prevention Committee

Chairperson: Roberta Brown, Director, Plainville Youth Services

The Prevention Committee provides a forum for discussion and implementation of prevention activities in fourteen towns: Berlin, Bristol, Burlington, Harwinton, New Britain, Plainville, Plymouth, Southington, Barkhamsted, Colebrook, New Hartford, Norfolk, Torrington, and Winchester.

Each town is represented by a member or members of its Local Prevention Council (LPC). These councils are designated as such by the mayor and include members from schools, community, municipal and state agencies, parents, and other interested individuals. Monthly meetings allow for regular updates and communication between the LPC's.

The towns included in our communities are diverse in size, cultural makeup, and socioeconomic groups, yet we have common interests in decreasing alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse. Our meetings allow for networking between the town and sharing of helpful ideas. As a committee of the SAAC, there is direct communication with other Regional Action Councils (RAC) and statewide agencies and programs. In addition, updates about pending legislation, public hearings, statewide events, and available grants are brought to the table.

The Prevention committee meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 9:00 am at Plainville Youth Services. 


Treatment & Recovery Committee

Chairperson: Christina Cipriani, Hartford Dispensary Bristol Clinic

The Treatment & Recovery Committee provides a forum for discussion of substance abuse treatment & access to care, current treatment initiatives, as well as substance use/abuse trends in the SAAC region.  Committee members are representatives from a broad array of community stakeholders including substance abuse service providers, concerned citizens, faith-based community, recovery community; and court intervention services.

The Treatment & Recovery Committee meets on the fourth Wednesday every other month at noon at Tunxis Community College.
