Advocacy – North Reading & Wilmington

Here is some Middlesex County specific information to inform our members:

There is an amendment pending on the Criminal Justice Reform bill that would establish a Restoration Center pilot program in Middlesex County. The proposed 24-hour center would provide specialized crisis services specifically for mental health, substance use, and related issues where police officers could drop off an individual, explain the situation to a clinician, and know that the person will get the care they need – including the possibility of staying for a few days to stabilize.  FACT SHEET

Constituents of Senator Bruce Tarr – including our North Reading and Wilmington members – can help move this process forward.  MORE INFO
