Shakespeare asked the question: “Wouldn’t a rose smell as sweet by any other name?”
Well, the Charlestown Substance Abuse Coalition (CSAC) is seeking to change its name to reflect the times. When CSAC was started in 2004, the name fit the mission. But times have changed and the jargon formerly used to describe substance abuse is now referred to in the medical field as Substance Abuse Disorders.
Today, CSAC is still coordinating care among Charlestown providers and resources, as well as care for individuals and families.
To bring CSAC up to the present, there is a contest that will end on April 18 to find a new name to reflect the environment in which the organization is working.
The mission of CSAC is as important today as it was when the organization started, but the terminology has changed.
We urge all our hipster readers to help the CSAC find a new name — and the winning name will receive an iPad mini. Suggestions can be sent to [email protected] or call 617-726-0059.
