Join With District 7910 To Address Opioid Crisis: Together, we can make a difference

By Pat and Skip Doyle

A question that we have been hearing from many parts of District 7910, from many clubs, and from many individual Rotarians , Interactors and Rotaractors, is, "What can we do about the opioid crisis in our communities? Certainly, individual clubs have taken some initiatives.
The Rotary Club of Worcester last year chose opioid addiction and prevention as its major local project. Last December, the Worcester club made a presentation and donation of $41,000 to the City of Worcester to be used by the Health Department to provide education and purchase needed supplies that can save lives. A portion of that donation also went to the Parks and Recreation Department to help keep a couple of schools in high-risk area stay open after hours to provide a safe environment for children to play. This was done to prevent children from getting caught up with drugs and gangs.
The Rotary Club of Hudson is using a District Grant to help the opioid fight in their community. There are at present at least a dozen other clubs with plans to put forth efforts in their communities to help solve the problem. 
The Rotary Club of Newton has recognized the need to bring together interested Rotarians, and to that end they are sponsoring a working meeting to exchange ideas on how Rotary clubs in Massachusetts can lead or participate in projects that deal with the opioid-addiction problem in the Commonwealth.  Representatives from all clubs and districts are welcome.
When: Monday, March 6, 7:30-9:00 p.m.
Where: West Suburban YMCA, 276 Church St., Newton
Cost: Free - just bring and share ideas
The purpose of the meeting is to bring together the collective works from each club and produce a plan that serves every city and town in the district. We are stronger when we combine our collective energies, efforts and resources. One club cannot make a significant impact on the issue of opioid abuse and drug addiction, but the combined efforts of every club can be a major force in the fight against this disease. That's our message and our goal.
To quote Heidi Heilman, of the Rotary Club of Wellesley, "One of the greatest current challenges of the opioid crisis, is that way too often, despite best intentions, efforts to address it are:
  • fragmented;
  • exercised in the silo of an agency or group, which creates duplication and turf issues where groups compete for the limited funding and resources available;
  • not based on best, evidence-based strategies that yield intended outcomes;
  • and, not adequately resourced given the scope of the problem.
"Please, let us collaborate to be certain we avoid these issues and dilemmas, land with a strong Rotary response that is highly collaborative with other community stakeholders invested in this issue, and get us the outcome we seek: Rotarians involved in the solution that yields less opiate abuse and addiction.”
Every one of us knows someone who has had their lives changed by this crisis. Meet with fellow Rotarians on March 6 in Newton as together they work to find a solution. We see Rotarians working together for a common goal. What a powerful force.
