ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, MD. (WJZ) — Locally, Anne Arundel County Schools are partnering with the County Health Department to deliver substance abuse treatment to high schoolers.

It’s called, “Star”, will work to screen teens to access recovery, allowing high school students to connect with licensed therapists from the Department of Health via tele-sessions.

Based on the results, the therapists and the student can work together to determine next steps and explore treatment options.

The program comes as the county is grappling with the opioid crisis.
