Join us for a Community Education Forum on
Nashua Safe Stations
Gateway to Opioid Recovery

Thursday, April 27 2017
5:30PM – 7:30PM
45 High Street
Nashua, New Hampshire

 

We invite you to attend a free educational forum discussing the Nashua Safe Station initiative and the impact it has on the health of our community. Hear from the perspective of those on the front line about the many faces of addiction

This educational forum sets out to discuss the “big picture” when it comes to Safe Station, including:

  • The History of the Safe Stations program, from its start in Manchester to now
  • An explanation of the procedure from a Safe Station entry point to recovery
  • What it is like to help someone through taking the first step into recovery
  • The role of a licensed alcohol and drug counselor (LADC) has with a client
  • The shared experience of a staff member of the Maple Arms Emergency Shelter who has helped those in need as they immediately enter into Harbor Homes care
  • The shared experience of a staff member of the Peggy and David Gilmour Medical Respite Center once that person has entered into treatment

Mayor of Nashua, Jim Donchess will open the night with remarks on the impact the Safe Station initiative has had on the city, as well as comments from First Responders who play a role in the process. The evening will also have a Q&A discussion following all the speakers.

If you are a community member who is concerned about the opioid crisis facing New Hampshire, a school administrator, a student, medical/hospital emergency staff, health care providers or a First Responder, then this event is for you regardless of if you are from Nashua or the surrounding community.

About Nashua Safe Stations

In response to the opioid drug crisis facing New Hampshire, a new task force on Substance Use Prevention, Treatment and Recovery was formed in January 2016 in Nashua, and began meeting to discuss how various organizations and agencies can work together to combat the opioid crisis. After 14 overdose deaths occurred in Nashua within a 2-month period (the highest number to date at that point in time), the task force proposed the creation of a safe station initiative that would serve those who are seeking treatment and recovery from drugs and substance misuse.
