The East Greenwich Drug Program has been operating since 1984 under the direction of Robert L. Houghtaling, M. ED. The Town of East Greenwich established the program following the tragic death of 13-year old, Todd Morsilli, a young tennis player who was struck and killed by a local teen who was driving under the influence of alcohol.
The Drug Program supports East Greenwich students, families and adults dealing with various issues including:
· Substance Abuse and Prevention
· Mental Health Concerns
· Parent Education
· Intervention for At-Risk Youth
· Juvenile Hearing Board
· Positive Supports and programs for Teens
· Character Education
· Bullying Prevention
The Drug Program offers a wide array of services in the areas of education, intervention, assessment, referral and community development. Working closely with the schools, police department, youth and family groups, outside agencies and other professionals, Mr. Houghtaling brings together multiple facets and resources within the community to provide support and positive intervention for all residents.
