Providing support services to families affected by addiction
Revere Recovery Help
Learn to Cope is a non-profit, peer lead support network for families touched by substance use disorders. Its peer facilitators help parents and other families members cope with addiction through weekly support meetings, an online community forum, and public presentations.
RFD is Revere Recovery Helps coordinating partner. Since 2010, its first responders have used Narcan to reverse the life threatening effects of overdoses. RFD provides literature on overdose education during first responder missions and works closely with Revere Recovery Help partners to educate the Revere community.
Mayor Brian Arrigo and the City of Revere is concerned about the rising level of opioid overdoses. The City of Revere is partnering with The Revere Fire Department, North Suffolk Mental Health Association, and The Winnisimet Regional Opioid Collaborative (WROC). This partnership is designed and dedicated to provide comprehensive education, navigation, and support to individuals and their families combating opioid use and addiction. This process is confidential and only meant to offer assistance.
The Team is comprised of Firefighters, Harm Reduction Specialists, and Recovery Coaches. The Team meets weekly to identify addresses of reported overdoses, current trends and evidence based on models of services. The Team will go out into the community to identify locations twice a week, supporting prevention, education, engagement, intervention, and treatment when requested.
