GLOUCESTER — Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I) Co-Founder and Chairman John Rosenthal and Executive Director Allie Hunter McDade are pleased to announce that P.A.A.R.I. has partnered with the City of Gloucester to place 4 mg doses of Narcan in public buildings.
What an amazing two years it has been! Since June 2015, P.A.A.R.I. has grown into a national movement of law enforcement agencies who believe in treatment over arrest and incarceration. We have placed more than 550 people into treatment through the Gloucester ANGEL Program alone and more than 10,000 individuals in total through our partners across the country.
The Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (P.A.A.R.I.) and Gloucester ANGEL Initiative were recently featured in Boston Metro after the program was recently reviewed by the New England Journal of Medicine. The study, spearheaded by researchers from Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Public Health, concluded that police-led placement programs greatly outweighed other methods of addiction treatment and placement.
