SSTAR Recieves $20,000 Grant from CVS Health

Grant to Stanley Street Treatment and Resources is part of CVS Health’s commitment to addressing and preventing the nation’s opioid epidemic. SSTAR will facilitate three general education programs (Fall – Winter – Spring) to bring awareness in the community about women and prescription drug abuse. Presented by Genie Bailey, MD and Susan St Amour, FNP, the program will highlight various aspects of prescription drug appropriate use and misuse; alternative coping strategies for anxiety and pain management; how trauma often leads to misuse and addiction; and why the misuse of prescription drugs can affect women much quicker, why treatment may be more difficult for women, and how women can recover with support. The program will be advertised in social media and print media.  Read More Press Release
