The unprecedented epidemic of opioid overdose and death is the most pressing public health crisis of our time, killing four Massachusetts residents each day. It is an inescapable fact that the opioid crisis is not happening to others—it is happening to each and every one of us, in our own backyards. It is devastating our communities, robbing our children, our family members and our friends of their lives and precious futures.
Boston Medical Center (BMC) has long led the charge, tackling addiction patient by patient with nationally-recognized, innovative services designed for individual needs. From programs tailored for young adolescents to urgent care that provides life-changing medications on the spot, Boston Medical Center has developed a premier system of integrated care that stands as a national model with promise to end the epidemic. We won’t stop until families no longer have to feel the pain of losing a loved one to addiction - no other hospital in our country is better equipped to make this goal a reality.
Team BMC athletes will fight the opioid epidemic plaguing our community by raising funds to support BMC's comprehensive treatment programs for young adults who have begun to experiment with substances in the hopes of preventing addiction, as well as patients who have already developed a substance use disorder.
Thank you for supporting Boston Medical Center in our mission to provide exceptional care, without exception!
