In the developmental phase of the program, Lunder-Dineen and the Time to Ask statewide Advisory Team were fortunate to collaborate with leadership, administrators and staff at the Bucksport Regional Health Center, Pines Health Services and Four Seasons Family Practice, all who informed the pre-program needs assessment. Bucksport Regional Health Center and Four Seasons Family Practice then went on to fully implement the program. These sites were selected because of their long-standing commitment to the providing patient-centered care and to addressing public health problems. Our program was developed based on the latest substance use evidence, 21st Century learning concepts and from a thorough pre-program needs assessment conducted by our research partners at the University of Southern Maine Muskie School of Public Service. We thank them for serving as pioneers in the development of a replicable model for primary care settings across the state of Maine and beyond.
We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with The KVHC and will be officially launched in the the fall 2019.
