Alosa CEO Expertise Tapped for Church Crusade Against Opioids

Posted in Updates on 5.10.2017

Alosa Health CEO Cheryl Bartlett was asked to speak to students at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Worchester, MA as part of an ongoing effort to dispel myths around opioid addiction and reduce stigma. The Saint Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church has made caring for community members with opioid addiction a top priority by embracing a doctrine of caring without judgement. Members of the clergy see themselves as frontline responders to the opioid crisis; as such, they believe that understanding families struggling with addiction is an essential part of their training.

The church's approach is so innovative that the story (and Cheryl’s appearance!) was picked up by Channel 5 news. Take a look at the clip here
