The Compact 2020 initiative is a collaborative community drug intervention and education program designed to have direct interactions among all ages, social, faith based and economic groups within all 808 sq. miles of Shelby County Alabama. The Compact has implemented strategies that attack the availability of drugs and drug use through diverse actions and tools that focus on the following: connect and education all ages; prevention; interdiction; promote rehabilitation opportunities; and the enforcement of legal sanctions including all community corrections efforts. As of July 1, 2016 there are seven full partners in the Compact: Shelby County District Attorney’s Office, Shelby County Commission & County Manager, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, City of Alabaster, City of Pelham, City of Hoover and City of Chelsea. The COMPACT expects other entities to participate in the programs and engagement actions applicable to the strategies. Dialog is underway with the Shelby County Community Health Foundation to be a full partner. Formal collaborations are underway to create an education, prevention, interdiction, and rehabilitation network to focus, identify and attack the availability of drugs and drug use in Shelby County. The abuse of drugs in Shelby County, both prescription and illegal, has increased and is claiming the lives of our residents. The Compact will utilize all available tools and techniques to target the origin of the exchange, support prevention, and assist the users on a path to recovery to prevent loss of life, impact sorrow and unhealthy behavior. The primary goal of the collaborative is to enhance public health and safety throughout county.

“If your child or loved one is considering or using pharmacotherapy, also known as medication-assisted treatment, to treat their opioid use disorder, you may be wondering how COVID-19 will impact their ability to get these critical medications. Each Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) is subject to state regulations as to how medications can be dispensed, so methods will vary accordingly. Encourage your child to talk with their provider about these policies so there is no lapse in care or medication.”

The Shelby County Chamber

Shelby County residents: If you haven't seen the #ShopShelbyCounty posts, be on the lookout. Our friends at The Shelby County Chamber are posting updates from local businesses.

As we continue to learn more about COVID-19 it is clear we have some challenging days ahead of us -- but what makes Shelby County such an amazing place to live and do business is the spirit of cooperation and collaboration we have throughout our communities. Now is the time for that spirit to shine through even stronger.

Our first step is to minimize the impact on our communities by following the advice our public health experts have shared with us related to COVID-19. To make sure you, your work-family and your loved ones are observing and practicing all of the information our healthcare officials are providing to us we recommend these domains for the latest information:

www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

www.alabamapublichealth.gov/

Our second step is to continue – just as we’ve always done -- to support and assist our fellow citizens who are the most vulnerable in our community.

Finally, while there is no doubt we will experience disruption to our Shelby County business community, working together we can minimize that impact by intentionally supporting local businesses in a safe, responsible manner.

Your Shelby County Chamber’s mission during these challenging times is to be a resource for you and your business. Your Chamber will be using our social media outlets and our website to share the latest information for our Shelby County business community needs today – and when we get past these challenging days.

Today, we are launching our #ShopShelbyCounty effort to allow businesses throughout Shelby County to share the steps they’re taking to navigate through the days ahead. This “virtual” networking forum – just like businesspeople do while attending traditional Chamber events – will provide valuable information for our Shelby County businesses.

While we have postponed all of our traditional Chamber events and programs in the interest of public health, your Chamber will remain open as a “Handshake-Free Zone”. Please keep an eye on our website and social media outlets for resources to help your business weather this trying time.

Working together has been Shelby County’s strength, and it will continue to serve us well in the days ahead.

The Best Is Yet To Come!
