Burke Substance Abuse (BSAN) meets on the last Friday of every month. These meetings are offered in a hybrid format and individuals are welcome to attend in-person or virtually via Zoom. Invitations and meeting information are sent before the meeting date and invitees are asked to RSVP.
The coalition also hosts multiple taskforces with a focus on different needs and concerns of the community. These meetings are documented through meeting minutes. These minutes are available via the taskforce chair. For more information about these taskforces or to obtain minutes, please contact the BSAN Leadership Chair, Kim James.
BSAN operates as a sub-committee of the county-wide collaborative focusing on the health and well-being of the county as a whole - Burke Wellness Initiative. Substance use/misuse has been consecutively identified for the past six years as a major health concern and crisis and a BSAN team has been tasked with developing and implementing the action plan to address these concerns. For more information about the Burke Wellness Initiative, please contact Lisa Moore with the Burke County Health Department.
