Substance abuse is a public health problem across the South Shore region that includes opiate dependence, alcoholism, tobacco, marijuana, vaping use promoting substance abuse or the abuse of any other drug that impacts the population’s mental and/or behavioral state. The Plymouth Public Health Department recognizes that this public health issue negatively impacts the South Shore population’s health and has an indirect economic impact as well. We are committed to working with community-based organizations to address this issue by moving toward more positive outcomes associated with substance abuse.
