|Wilson and Mark Fontaine, Executive Director FADAA|
Since joining Manatee Glens in 2001, Wilson has served as Chair of the Manatee County Substance Abuse Coalition whose goals are to reduce underage drinking and prescription pain pill abuse. Most recently, she has increased Manatee Glens’ commitment to prevention of alcohol and drug use in the Manatee County Schools by expanding prevention services to reach thousands of students.
An expert in trauma assessment and crisis intervention, Wilson noted, “Kids who turn to alcohol and drugs often have underlying emotional challenges. We need to deal with both problems to really help these kids.”
