Charley Curie Resigns as Administrator of SAMHSA
May 31, 2006

Charles Curie (Charley) has officially announced his resignation as Administrator of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA).

PCPA has been proud to have one of "it’s own" working in Washington on behalf of mental health and substance abuse issues. Curie had previously served on the PCPA Board of Directors and as Deputy Secretary of the Pennsylvania Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.

PCPA was pleased to have Curie recently visit the association’s new office. During his visit Mr. Curie provided an update on some of SAMHSA’s priorities (see the June Provider News). He also discussed his work in Washington DC and his desire to use the experience he has had to further advance the field in the United States and abroad.

Curie’s friends at PCPA appreciate the work he has done over the last five years in Washington and wish him the best as he considers his future options.
