Yarmouth Substance Awareness Committee

This Yarmouth Substance Awareness Committee (YSAC) was established by the Board of Selectmen to raise community awareness and provide education and support programs to address prevention and intervention with substance use disorder in the Town of Yarmouth. The Committee mission statement and by-laws are available here for you to read.

Our membership includes residents, parents, students, clergy, businesses, town government, agency representatives, first responders, and individuals in recovery. Our hybrid meetings take place the third Wednesday of every month: in person at the Yarmuth Police Department or virtually through Zoom Meetings.

If you’re interested in attending a meeting, please contact co-chairs Danny Rodrigues at dRodrigues@duffyhealthcenter.org or Annie Catalano at acatalano@yarmouth.ma.us.
