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.

Opioid Addiction

Long-term opioid use causes changes in the brain that result in uncontrollable compulsive drug craving, seeking and use.

Overdose Signs

Recognizing the signs of an overdose can help you save someone’s life.  Know the right and wrong steps.

Community Involvement

Community based programs are essential in reducing the problem of opioid abuse and overdoses.

If you think someone you are with is overdosing right now call 911 immediately.

Signs and Treatment
