Substance abuse affects everyone. We creatively look at places where change can be made and be effective. The Collaborative is focused on education, training, and outreach for active consumers, bystanders, and healthcare providers.
The objective of the Brockton Area Opioid Abuse Prevention Collaborative is to provide primary, secondary and tertiary prevention resources including education, awareness and support to the communities that we serve. High Point Treatment Center’s Prevention Services staff provides technical assistance to volunteers across twelve sectors in addition to promoting advocacy and working effortlessly to reduce the stigma associated with substance use disorders.
Long-term opioid use causes changes in the brain that result in uncontrollable compulsive drug craving, seeking and use.
Recognizing the signs of an overdose can help you save someone’s life. Know the right and wrong steps.
The Coalition does two main training sessions: one for users and one for potential bystanders. The training includes extensive information around the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose, risk factors for overdose, proper overdose management skills such as rescue breathing and Naloxone.
