The Berkshire Post-Overdose Program (BPOP) aims to send out field teams consisting of EMS and Peer Support Workers to provide outreach to those who have recently experienced an overdose and/or are at heightened risk for future overdose. These visits will include a wellness check, connection to naloxone, and linkage to recovery, harm reduction, and/or treatment resources that the person may be interested in.
BPOP is now launching its first pilot with Northern Berkshire EMS. If you are aware of an individual in Northern Berkshire County potentially at risk for an opioid-related overdose, please fill out the form below for our providers to follow up with. Please DO NOT indicate potentially confidential information such as their name or known address on this form– we will reach out to you directly for that information.
