Substance Abuse & Misuse Among the Elderly
AdCare Educational Institute shares with other organizations, community members and policy makers, concern regarding Maine’s capacity to identify and respond effectively to substance abuse and misuse among our growing population of seniors in Maine. As we have investigated this topic, we’ve discovered that it’s a situation that remains underestimated, under-identified, underdiagnosed and in some ways, misunderstood. The elder care services arena across the state already has a wide system of services to respond to the more general health and wellbeing of our elders.
