Global GranGG1743408 Treatment and Prevention of Heroïn Addicts

Rotary Club Binghamton D7170 Upstate NY (Host Partner) and Rotary Club of Tijuana Oeste (International Partner) have organised a global grant on treatment and prevention of Heroïn addicts in the Upstate NY region.

District 7170 created in cooperation with clubs of the district a global grant that addresses the critical aspects of the opioid problem that has infected its communities.  It is joining area agencies to educate its young people about the dangers of drug abuse, support an ambulatory detox center, create a media campaign targeted to those at most risk and provide transportation for treatment for addicts in rural areas.

Looking forward for your reaction, suggestions and questions are most valuable for further development of the Rotarian Action Group Addiction Prevention.

Approved global grant Training Addiction Prevention and Treatment.

Massachusetts / Addiction Prevention Collaborative Pilot

The project will educate both adult and youth community members on substance misuse and the brain chemistry of addiction, and work to lower rates of use and addiction by strengthening local level infrastructure to implement best practice addiction prevention measures. This will be accomplished by two forms of addiction prevention education programs (adult and youth) and by enhancing the addiction prevention supports and assets within participating communities. Perhaps most importantly, this grant will develop a blueprint for raising local community awareness of social/cultural norms that perpetuate drug use and the brain chemistry of addiction, as well as how best to take action to prevent substance misuse and addiction.
