The Brockton Area Prevention Collaborative (BAPC)
The Brockton Area Prevention Collaborative brings together the communities of Brockton, Bridgewater, East Bridgewater, Hanson, Raynham, Rockland and Whitman. The Collaborative educates young people with accurate information and tools to cope with life’s challenges, and to help them understand the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol. We connect individuals and families with the resources they need to become better informed. And we work with leaders in the community to build a system of support in every neighborhood.
The Brockton Mayor’s Opioid Overdose Prevention Coalition (BMOOPC)
In 2008, the City of Brockton in partnership with High Point Treatment Center was awarded the MassCALL2 grant with the primary objective of saving the lives of those in the community of Brockton suffering from opiate addiction and to create awareness about opioid overdose prevention.
Today, the coalition has expanded to become a part of the Brockton Area Prevention Collaborative, encompassing the towns of Bridgewater, Brockton, East Bridgewater, Hanson, Rockland, and Whitman as a regional approach. The BAPC was the first funded cluster on the south shore to address the issue of opioid abuse and overdose. Follow BMOOPC on Facebook
