In October 2014, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake convened the Heroin Treatment and Prevention Task Force to address the critical problem of opioid addiction in Baltimore. The goal of the task force was to study the problem of heroin addiction and propose solutions for improving access to effective treatment and neighborhood compatibility, with findings to be presented in July 2015.
Mayor Rawlings-Blake and Health Commissioner Dr. Wen will be holding two community meetings to present the draft progress report to Baltimore residents and stakeholders. The first community meeting will be held on April 1, 2015 in the West/Northwest section of the City, and the second will be held in the East/Southeast section (time and date TBD).
Please see the details below for the first meeting:
April 1st 2015 6-7:30pm
Gaudenzia Treatment Center
3643 Woodland Ave
Baltimore, MD 21215
Open to the public. Please RSVP by contacting Cassandra Stewart 443-984-3996.
