Substance abuse conference to be held at Pinkerton

DERRY — Originally scheduled for January, a substance abuse conference is set for Tuesday at Pinkerton Academy, with Gov. Maggie Hassan expected to speak at the event.

The conference — Substance Misuse Treatment and Trends — is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to noon in the high school’s Stockbridge Theatre. Registration is 8:15 to 9 a.m. The conference is being hosted by the Center for Life Management, with funding provided by the New Hampshire Bureau of Behavioral Health.
Celia Felsenberg, the center’s director of adult and emergency services, said the conference is geared toward a variety of professionals, including mental health specialists, guidance counselors, school nurses, medical professionals, law enforcement, legal professionals, and others interested in substance abuse.
“The biggest reason for doing this is just to bring all of these providers together to respond to a pretty prevalent issue in the state,” Felsenberg said. “And we are trying to do what we can to move things in a more positive direction with resources and collaboration.”
In addition to Gov. Hassan, also scheduled to speak are Joseph Harding, director, NH Bureau of Drug & Alcohol Services; and Thomas Andrew, MD, state of New Hampshire medical examiner.

Following the speakers, there will be a panel discussion with community experts representing school guidance, law enforcement, emergency medicine, mental health and substance abuse treatment. Anyone who wants to attend the conference is asked to pre-register at For information, call 965-0733 or email
