from MHA President & CEO, Steve Walsh

“The evidence is clear: overdose prevention centers represent an important, proven part of our response to the substance use crisis in Massachusetts. MHA and our members fully support these new DPH recommendations, including the need to protect the caregivers at the heart of harm reduction care. OPCs give our commonwealth an opportunity to, once again, step up and address this crisis with the innovation and urgency it deserves.”
