  • Date: 02/12/2021

The Bennington Opioid Response Team, which formed in the spring of 2018, is sharing recent updates on its work and hopes to gather feedback from the community. The group spent the end of 2020 planning and is piloting programs now. Programs include a community-based overdose prevention education, school-based substance abuse and overdose education, a program to decrease stigma and increase positive outcomes through medication-assisted treatment, a text-message-based support program for those in recovery, a community health navigator to help people in substance use treatment to access needed resources, and a recovery-friendly workplace program, among others.
