The FLIP Approach to Stop the Drug Epidemic and Fentanyl Poisoning in Maine

The FLIP Approach to STOP the Drug Epidemic and Fentanyl Poisoning Serving Maine

The Global Recovery Movement’s ultimate goal is to STOP the drug epidemic and to STOP fentanyl poisoning. Our mission is to FLIP addiction from the criminal justice system to the healthcare system. The criminal justice system is punitive and discriminatory, while the healthcare system provides dignity, kindness, treatment, recovery, builds up their self-esteem and helps prevent relapses.

The Global Recovery Movement also is helping to drug proof communities through student assistant and drug counselors in schools and throughout the community. We are also working with municipal alliances to put drug prevention funds into peer leadership organized activities. We are dedicated to drug proofing communities with the FLIP approach.

Portugal has successfully and effectively ‘flipped’ addiction from the criminal justice system to the healthcare system. This method has been proven in Portugal and in Dayton, Ohio and we would like to help get this type of program implemented Nationally. We need to simply decide that we are NOT going to punish our people for having a potentially fatal disease. We can and must advocate to remove all obstacles for our cherished loved ones to recover from drug addiction.

Implementing Treatment Not Jail-TGRM in Maine

Implementing Treatment Not Jail-TGRM Serving Maine, ME

Recognizing that law enforcement has a front row seat to the opioid epidemic and are in a unique position to prevent drug overdose deaths, the Police Assisted Addiction & Recovery Initiative (PAARI) provides training, strategic guidance, support, and resources to help law enforcement agencies nationwide create non-arrest pathways to treatment and recovery to stop the opioid epidemic from killing our loved ones. They have customized programs based on each community and can utilize multiple law enforcement entry points to treatment. Some treatments involve medications that can be used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, which have contributed to lowering overdose deaths. Let’s all work together in educating patients, caregivers, and the community about the benefits of having these medications readily available to more people. Reach out and find more information about these medications:

  • Naloxone, (also known as Narcan) is designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose.
  • Naltrexone, is used to prevent people who have been addicted to certain drugs (opiates) from taking them again.
  • Suboxone, is used as part of a medical, social and psychological treatment program for patient’s dependent on opioids like heroin, morphine, oxycodone or codeine.
  • Vivitrol, is a monthly injection that contains naltrexone (an opioid antagonist) which is injected intramuscularly into the buttocks. Naltrexone helps reduce opioid and alcohol cravings.

Grieving Caregivers Support for Drug, Opioid and Fentanyl Overdose Death Serving Maine, ME

No one could ever understand the pain and suffering family and friends endure after losing someone from an overdose death. The Global Recovery Movement team has been reaching out to communities across America to raise public awareness on drug prevention and drug treatment. They are asking that all communities implement the Police Assisted Addiction Recovery Initiative (PAARI); plant, donate, or register a memorial tree in your town or county in honor of someone who lost their battle to drugs; share prevention information about fentanyl poisoning, fake pills, addictive opioids like oxycontin, and information on overdose deaths in your town or county; place student assistance counselors in the schools and community (http://asapnj.org); start a municipal alliance (community coalition with leaders, police and parents) and fund the grass roots with drug fine money for school and community prevention programs (https://www.gcada.nj.gov).

We have a network of grieving moms, dads, caregivers, family, and friends who have volunteered to make a difference through their communities and other communities by reaching out to others who are grieving as well.
