III. Cultural Competence Exercise:
• Mike Botke stated that a final draft of the formal Memorandum of
Understanding between Lansing Teen Court and the Ingham Substance Abuse Prevention (ISAP) Coalition was complete. Harriett Dean stated that she would deliver it to the ISAP Executive Committee for approval.
• Micki Fuhrman reminded ISAP members present that Drug Fact Chat Day
would take place on Monday, May 17th, from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm at the Eaton County ISD in Charlotte. Pat Wheeler asked it agencies such as Gateway Community Services had been informed of the event, which was affirmed.
• Mike Tobias reported on Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC)
activity. He stated that MLCC would hold a Semi-Annual Public Hearing on June 9th. Mike stated that prevention people had been working with them on the alcohol energy drinks issue. Several prevention people had attended the April 21st Hearing at MLCC to support the de-shelving of this product. Mike stated that one distributor in attendance had spoken in defense of his particular brand. Mike also stated that House Bill 5059, which would allow units of government to raise per/drink fees, has been in committee for a long time. He added that Representative Mark Meadows is in favor of the proposed bill.
• Amy Moore distributed copies of a Chili Cook Off Gatekeepers 2010,
Guidelines and Helpful Tips handout to ISAP members present. Amy invited ISAP members to act as gatekeepers at this annual event, on June 9th at Adado Park in Lansing. Tickets for the Cook Off are $10.00, but volunteer gatekeepers pay $5.00 Amy stated that volunteers could arrive for training at 3:30 pm and start serving from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm. She stated that she receives feedback about over-service of alcohol at the Cook Off, as well as underage people being wrist-banded to allow them to drink. Amy suggested that ISAP volunteers do scan checking for these actions. Amy added that the Lansing Board of Water and Light has traditionally sponsored the Cook Off but are backing out this year. Marie asked if we could have until the June 1st ISAP meeting to decide, which Amy affirmed.
• Andrea Yokich stated that Lansing School District counselors had received
notice of a Social Justice program for local youth and they are very interested. Amy stated that four youth who had attended the ISAP sponsored Youth Media Advocacy Training would be participating.
• Rod MacDonald asked Amy how the recent Smoke Free Michigan policy was
working. Amy stated that local bartenders and other staff people seem very happy with it.
• Rod also inquired about the “Tri-County’s Got Talent for Alcohol Awareness”
Talent Show. Mike Tobias stated that auditions had been down from last year, but they had ended up with 12 really good acts. Mike stated that in his opinion the right people won. He added that six of the youth attended a Lansing Lugnuts baseball game the following week. Pat Wheeler added that the winners of the poster contest and the essay/poem contest had also received acknowledgment at the talent show. She stated that she would bring book
marks portraying the posters to the June ISAP meeting. Pat added that the winning posters would be displayed at the downtown Lansing Library and other libraries.
• Rod stated that he and Harriett had attended a meeting regarding Recovery
Oriented Services and the Coordinated Care Center at MidSouth Substance Abuse Commission (MSSAC). Rod stated that there is going to be a significant change in the way that substance abuse treatment will be conducted. Prevention will be included in the continuum of care. Rod stated that preventionists will have to be helpful with the process because funding is dependent on it. He added that Eaton County is out in front of this process. Pat Wheeler stated that recovery oriented services are designed to help the individual within the community. Collaboration will have to take place with all of the services the individual requires. Until now, treatment has always been about direct services. Case managers will have to receive salaries out of substance abuse dollars. Harriett stated that we may have to add an extra ISAP meeting focused on continuum of care to our calendar, depending on when it is rolled out. Rod stated that fewer people will actually be treated for substance abuse issues with this system. We will have to do more with prevention dollars. Amy added that she has been working on presenting the Substance Abuse Referral, Interventions and Treatment (SBIRT) system to local physicians. She stated that Dr. Baker, MSSAC Medical Director, has agreed to discuss antabuse and other aids to recovery with providers at the Ingham County Health Department. Amy stated that compliance checks are needed for the distribution and misuse of all drugs, prescription as well as illicit, as well as alcohol and tobacco products. She suggested that this is something that the ISAP Coalition could coordinate with law enforcement.
• Marie stated that ISAP is now operating at several levels. Currently, ISAP
staff identifies needs to be filled. Marie stated that, other than Parents Helping Parents, we do not have a volunteer cadre. ISAP still needs to expand its’ community engagements.
V. Work Group Breakout Sessions:
Harriett stated that a time line for presenting our 2011 Implementation Plan to MSSAC to review for funding was attached to the agenda. She stated that work group leaders would direct their groups on reviewing current logic models and/or current projects for what strategies should be recommended to MSSAC. The workgroup breakout sessions should focus on planning and how and what to recommend for the 2011 ISAP Implementation Plan. Alcohol, tobacco and prescription drugs are our only three consequence areas (other than data or capacity) that will be addressed in the Ingham County strategic Plan for 2011-2015. Harriett added that we will be adapting the MSSAC Strategic Plan to our own and would be emailed to all ISAP members as
soon as possible. The Strategic Plan is due June 30th and will likely be voted on electronically to allow maximum time for coalition members to review the plan.
