Your Chance To Help with the Opioid Crisis
Over the last several years Hope House has seen an increase in opioid overdose deaths of its graduates. Many of these deaths are avoidable with further treatment and a safe environment to recover. Hope House is excited to announce that it is adding a 25 bed graduate program to its continuum of care in early 2018.
One of the major causes of these deaths is that graduates for the most part have nowhere to live after completing the program. Do to the lack of affordable safe housing in the city of Boston many of the clients end up living in the existing publicly funded shelter system where alcohol and other drug use is rampant. When you combine this “wet” shelter environment with the fact that fentanyl-laced heroin is on the street today and it is readily available, cheap, and deadly you have a dangerous volatile mix of circumstances.
Graduates in the early stages of recovery need more structured and supported residential environment Hope House will now offer a 4th Phase to its Residential Services, The Graduate House . This facility will allow 25 clients to continue their treatment and enhance the likelihood of success in their ongoing recovery. Clients will receive case management services and continued treatment in our Outpatient Clinic.
We are asking for your help, we will be able to furnish and provide comfort to not only the men who live there but to their families who know that their loved ones are continuing their treatment journey.
Any donation will help, we have listed suggested donations to help furnish the house.
