Wednesday, March 22, 2006 – A new organization has been borne out of the recent hosting of a Health, Education and Enforcement in Partnership workshop for agencies involved in substance abuse work in the areas of Health, Education and Enforcement.

The workshop was conducted recently in an attempt to bring all such agencies under one umbrella and to foster closer networking in the field of regulating and preventing substance use or abuse.

Acting Director of the Substance Abuse Advisory Council Secretariat Ms. Elizabeth Wilson says she is optimistic about the future because by the close of the workshop, some giant strides had been accomplished.

“By the end of the workshop what we did was actually form a steering committee. The larger group of over thirty representatives of agencies and some community groups became a network that we named TEAM – an acronym for Together Everyone Achieves More. Establishing that organization was basically the point of the workshop.”

Along with this achievement Mrs. Wilson said participants of the workshop reached a position that the HEP Approach, which originally is a Canadian strategy, can and will be adopted in Saint Lucia.

The new body dubbed has scheduled a meeting for the 4th of April.
