COHASSET — Town Manager Christopher Senior is pleased to announce a presentation by Health Imperatives, Inc., that will be focusing on the connection between relationships, substance use and how they can affect one another.

“Healthy relationships play a massive role in our overall well-being, and underage substance use can alter or determine relationships,” said Nicole Balaschi, Program Director of the Safe Harbor Cohasset Coalition. “We understand this is a tough topic to discuss, but it is important information and the more parents, youth and community members know, the better prepared they’ll be.”
