Braintree's Community Partnership on Substance Abuse
"We are focused on this important issue and want to develop a community based response. Although Braintree's Community Partnership on Substance Abuse has only just begun to do its work, it is clear from our initial discussions that the Town of Braintree has a real need to provide this service to our residents".
— Mayor Joseph C. Sullivan
The mission of Braintree's Community Partnership on Substance Abuse (BCPSA) is to increase awareness of substance abuse within the community and enhance communication between youth, parents, educators and residents utilizing evidenced based data in order to promote education, encourage prevention and provide access to resources.
About the Partnership
Braintree's Community Partnership on Substance Abuse was established in 2011 to address the substance abuse problem in our town. The South Shore has been hit hard with the opioid epidemic over the past decade. Our goal is to focus on increasing awareness of the issue among residents, educating the public, establishing prevention efforts and providing resources for those in need of treatment and support. The Partnership is comprised of educators, public safety officials, first responders, health providers, parents and professionals. Please contact the Mayor's office with any questions or concerns.
