On September 19, 2016 Harford County Executive Barry Glassman and the Office of Drug Control Policy delivered donations for “Project Healthy Delivery” to the Ashley Addiction Intensive Outpatient Treatment Office at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health in Bel Air. Project Healthy Delivery is a local treatment resource for pregnant women suffering from addiction.
The program was developed by the Harford County Office of Drug Control Policy, UMUCH, Ashley Addiction Treatment, and Birthright of Bel Air Pregnancy Aid Center. It offers wrap-around intensive outpatient treatment and prenatal services; transportation assistance; help with insurance; parenting, health and well-being programs, and incentives to remain in the program. Before they deliver, mothers in the program are also connected to an array of resources, including social services and other support agencies.
The Hickory Elementary School Patriot Program, Harford Technical High School’s SADD Group, and Celebree Learning Centers donated the items which included diapers, baby blankets, bottles, bibs, and booties.
