Since the birth of 360 Development Institute in 2010, the number of drug and alcohol-related intoxication deaths has more than tripled in the State of Maryland.

In our continuing efforts to collaborate on the prevention and reduction of substance and drug misuse in our communities, 360 Development Institute is developing this website, in part, as a portal for useful and quality substance and drug education and service information, culled from websites throughout the State of Maryland and the nation.

Further, you will find information on additional services and programs that fall under the 360 Development Institute "umbrella".

360 Development Institute is a proud member of "Prevention Works in Somerset County" Drug Free Community Coalition.

About Our Founder

Tanya Madison Morrison, ESQ
360 Development Institute is the ultimate brainchild of Tanya Madison Morrison who created 360 Degree Women, a support vehicle for women, in 2007. She believed all people need stimulation to be their best selves and should never be put in a niche or restricted. She believed a person should take part in every aspect of life and it was her life-mission to help them do so.

She didn't just challenge you and walk away, she helped others find their voice. She was always there, chatting about what you were doing and adding fuel to the fire, pushing it.

Tanya was not just our leader but one of the most courageous persons we have ever known. In 2017, Tanya lost her battle with lung cancer, but her presence as a intuitive, fluid, thought-leader is forever infused within the personality and spirit of 360 Development Institute.

Her work continues.

Our Goal

To move beyond the rhetoric and actually assist community development organizations with creating and maintaining responsible programs promoting a drug-free culture. 360 Development Institute's also serve as the funding arm for the "Prevention Works in Somerset County" Drug Free Community Coalition.

Our Vision

By 2022, to see a quantifiable reduction in drug misuse statistics for the communities that we serve and, as a member of the Coalition, present a stronger, more considered voice to help the national conversation about what is going on in our communities and the vital issues to think about and address.
