It is important for the Rye ACT Coalition to have healthcare representation for many reasons. Healthcare professionals can offer a foundation of knowledge regarding the body and the various effects of drugs and alcohol. We can also offer parent and consumer education, editing of publications, and perspectives on healthy prevention techniques.
St. Vincent’s Hospital, a Division of St. Joseph’s Medical Center, is a proud community partner of RyeACT. Addiction has a devastating effect on the lives of the individuals and families it touches. But through education, prevention, and treatment initiatives, we can help turn the tide and provide hope for the community.
