It is a new year, but the fight against opioids and substance abuse continues in Bladen County. Dr. Cathy Gantz, Program Coordinator of the Substance Abuse Task Force released some announcements in reference to the task force.

It is a new year and a new name for the Bladen County Opioid Task Force. The task force will now be known as the Bladen County Substance Abuse Task Force. You are invited to come to the task force meeting on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 2:00 pm at the Bladen County Health Department. Syd Wiford, the Principal Consultant of Addiction, Consulting, and Training Associates, LLC, will be sharing a summary of the Bladen County Substance Abuse Task Force Strategic Plan.

Bladen County does not have an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in the County. We are interested in having a weekly meeting and are looking for individuals who are members of Alcoholics Anonymous who would help get a weekly meeting started in Elizabethtown. Space has already been acquired for the meeting and day and time are flexible. If you are interested in helping establish an AA meeting in Elizabethtown, please contact Cathy Gantz, Program Coordinator of the Substance Abuse Task Force at cgantz@bladenco.org or 910-872-6256.
