Substance Abuse in Massachusetts

Substance Abuse in Massachusetts

Hi everyone. My name is Sidnie Kulik and I am a junior at the Noble and Greenough School in Dedham, MA. This past year, I have been taking an online medical problem solving class with an organization called Global Online Academy.

Massachusetts Public Health

As a part of our final project, we are supposed to address a health issue in our community. For me, it was hard to find a serious health problem in and around Boston due to the strong health care system and medical facilities we have. However, what I found to be shocking was the substance use rates in Massachusetts. In nearly every category, Massachusetts residents use and abuse substances at a higher rate than the national average.

My mission in my project is to raise awareness about this issue. I want to help potential users before they start and outline ways to help those in their recovery process.

Thank you for taking the time to watch the following video and please help spread awareness about substance use disorder in Massachusetts.
