The Barnstable County Department of Human Services’ Regional Substance Use Council (RSAC) announced the launch of its new web site –

RSAC works with Cape Cod communities, elected officials, schools, businesses and health and human services agencies to provide resources and support in the areas of prevention, harm reduction, treatment, and recovery. As part of this effort, RSAC has undertaken a broad, multi-media public awareness campaign called My Choice Matters that seeks to affect social norms by educating the general public and specific target groups about substance use.

The My Choice Matters campaign uses print, radio, and social media to create awareness and dialog about substance use on Cape Cod. With the launch of the web site, interested parties now have a local resource for important and useful information:

Factual information about alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs, inhalants and common illegal drugs and how they affect the body
Frequently Asked Questions and tips for parents
Frequently Asked Questions and tips for youth
Local substance use treatment and recovery resources for yourself or someone else
Cape Cod substance use facts
Getting involved in your community to address substance use on Cape Cod
