    Default Urgent. Please read

    I'm going out on a limb here and hope that I'm not violating any Forum rules. I'm encouraging you to search for a recent announcement from the City of Gloucester, MA concerning the Police Department's assault on the opiate epidemic. An innovative and wonderful way in which to help people who want help. Please find the article. You will be delighted to read the brilliance of this plan.

    Peace,

    Cat

    Wow! That's huge. I like the fact that they do classify it as a disease. Hopefully this will set a precedent. I wonder what the accountability will be. Like if they ask for help but don't take it serious. I can see some abusing this and just asking for help to get out of trouble and then go right back.

    Hey Kid,

    Good to see you!!! Of course there's always the big risk that an individual will not take full advantage of the help here. However, the way I read this, it isn't for someone who winds up in the PD because they're busted. This is for someone who walks in voluntarily and wants some help. With my son, I helplessly watched as he called one of the only two detox facilities in this area every. single. hour. waiting for a bed. This went on for 8 days!!! We know that when activitely using, each moment that passes we are further away from recovery and the often the desire and strength to do it. This will catch those in the moment they realize they need help and the help will be there. Amazing stuff.

    Peace,

    Cat

    Cat- very delightful indeed ! I pray other states follow MA lead , expecially liked the fact it's funded from money seized from dealers now the next huge step would be harsher sentencing to dealers!!
