To whom it may concern-
This is a letter of support for The Schreiber Research Group (TSRG). The San Luis Valley Area Health Education Center has had the pleasure of working with TSRG for the last year in a collaborative effort to assess the needs of Conejos County regarding substance use and abuse. TSRG has been instrumental in providing guidance, encouragement and support as community stakeholders explore options in prevention, treatment and recovery for community members and their family on substance abuse concerns. TSRG has shown expertise in coalition building, listening to issues as they arise, and providing direction in problem solving solutions to the community’s concerns.
The San Luis Valley Area Health Education Center has made substance abuse and evolving solutions a priority over the last 7 years by participating in coalitions, providing education for medical providers and community members, and starting 2 rural harm reduction programs in the San Luis Valley.
I look forward to our continued work with TSRG in seeking alternative approaches and funding for the substance use concerns expressed by the Conejos County citizens.
