COHRLOGOThe Community Outreach, Help and Recovery (COHR) is a program dedicated to aid and provide resources to support Somerville Residents on their recovery path from substance abuse and mental health. COHR provides free training classes to residents who wish to assist others as Recovery Coaches. With the help and sponsorship from the City of Somerville and initiatives like the Police Assisted Addiction Recovery Initiative (PAARI) classes like "Pathways to Recovery" and "Mental Health First Aid" were successful this year. These courses help build an understanding of the individual, family and community impact of substance abuse, and mental health issues. Participants learn overviews of current treatments and action plans to assess these situations and implement appropriate care. Training and courses are held at the Somerville Public Safety Building located at 220 Washington Street in Somerville. Announcements of upcoming courses are made on our website as well as on social media.



Anyone wishing to participate and attend these classes may register with Patty Contente, COHR Program Director at (617)-625-1600 Ext. 7281.
