The county's war on drugs has moved to Parole.
In a move to better coordinate treatment and prevention programs, the Health Departmentmoved the nine-member Office of Drug and Alcohol Programs next to Open Door, a heavily used outpatient program in Parole Plaza.
David W. Almy, the county's new drug czar, and his staff left theArundel Center to work more closely with treatment counselors.
County Executive Robert R. Neall decided in May to place the office, formerly an independent agency in the executive branch, under the Health Department's authority.
The office plans to focus more on grass-roots prevention efforts.
