About The Brockton Mayor’s Opioid Overdose Prevention Coalition:
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 BAOAPC was the first funded cluster on the south shore to address the issue of opioid abuse and overdose.
Strategies and interventions for our state grants must be consistent with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) model, consistent with any available evidence-based practices or local best practices.
The Collaborative focuses on education, trainings, and outreach for individuals in active use, bystanders, and the community at large.
