Substance Abuse Prevention
The MOAPC grant emphasizes the integration of SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) model and planning process for preventing substance use and misuse into local public health prevention systems, to ensure a consistent, data-informed planning process across the State focused on using culturally competent, sustainable approaches that will have a measurable impact on preventing and reducing opioid misuse and opioid overdoses in the five Merrimack Valley communities- Andover, Haverhill, Lawrence, Methuen and North Andover.

The Lawrence HUB was created in January 2018 in partnership with the LMCC with the intent to facilitate discussions and coordinate resources to provide individuals, families, or environments within the five identified communities in the Merrimack Valley ( Andover, Haverhill, Lawrence, Methuen and North Andover) with identified supports and information. The HUB provides support and accessible resources to address situations with acutely elevated risk factors. Members of the HUB provide coordinated integrated responses through the mobilization of support and identifiable resources to address situations facing individuals, families or environments with acutely elevated risk factors.
