Prevention and Support Network

The Central Massachusetts Prevention and Support Network was formed by Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr. to bring together government leaders, law enforcement, health-care professionals, educators, substance-misuse experts, loved ones of those struggling, and community members to address the pressing concerns in substance use disorder and mental health challenges.

Our mission is to work together to help reduce the number of people struggling with substance use disorder and prevent overdose deaths in Central Massachusetts.

Key network goals are to prevent overdose deaths; to raise awareness of the ever-evolving substance use crisis; to reduce stigma about substance use disorder and ensure that it is considered a treatable disease; and to coordinate treatment services for those in active addiction.
