Gaston Controlled Substances Coalition

roundtable
The Gaston Controlled Substances Coalition is composed of county residents who are working together to assure: safe prescribing for pain management, local treatment for opioid dependence, and community-based education to prevent opioid addiction. Coalition members include persons affected by opioid dependence, clinicians who write prescriptions, nurses, behavioral health specialists, law enforcement officers, pharmacists, drug educators, and communication specialists. The Coalition is a program of the Gaston Community Healthcare Commission, which invites organizations and individuals to join our initiative.
