Neurobiology of Addiction Project Receives Grant

From the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce:

Anthony Salvatore, President of the Middlesex County Substance Abuse Action Council (MCSAAC), announced The Middlesex County Community Foundation has awarded a planning grant to MCSAAC for its Neurobiology of Addiction project.

The project, supported by eleven school superintendents, will include a museum-type exhibit, 20-minute documentary film, and written materials. The project will travel school to school throughout Middlesex County, helping teachers explain the impact of alcohol, tobacco and drugs on the brain. The foundation’s planning grant will help MCSAAC prepare its application for a $1.2 million, four-year grant from the National Institutes for Health. The planning grant was made possible through the generosity of the Foundation’s River View Cemetery Fund.
