Through prevention and education programs, Bridgewell works to promote health and wellness with the community.
Massachusetts Opioid Abuse Prevention Collaborative (MOAPC) is a seven-year grant, funded by the Department of Public Health. The goal is to have community-based programs focused on the prevention of the use of opioids, and the prevention and reduction of fatal and non-fatal opioid overdoses through local policy, practice, systems and environmental changes.
Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success (SPF PFS) is a three-year grant, funded by the Department of Public Health. The goal of this grant is to prevent and reduce prescription drug misuse and abuse among high school aged youth (ages 14 to 18) in the Lynn community.
The Driver Alcohol Education (DAE) Program is a 16-week program for first time DUI offenders and is licensed by the Department of Public Health. The topics are related to alcohol and other drug use and its effect on driving and other life problems. The intent of the program is to raise awareness, influence behavioral changes and prevent substance use disorders.
Funded through the District Attorney’s Office and Lynn Police Department, the Breed School All Stars Program is a research-based curriculum geared towards middle school students.
With Bridgewell’s clinical support to prevent substance use, the program is focused on helping participating students develop leadership skills and avoid self-destructive behaviors.
