Natick 180 serves as Natick’s principal community-based coalition for inclusive and culturally-responsive addiction education, prevention and recovery. Natick 180 builds upon and integrates the work of the Natick Opioid Task Force with Natick Together for Youth (NTY), two community groups that have a long history of preventing and reducing substance use disorder in Natick. The Coalition brings together diverse partners, individuals and resources to: 

  • address factors contributing to substance use disorder, such as mental health, stigma, and racism;
  • provide assistance to those who are currently experiencing addiction; 
  • empower members of the recovery community through inclusion in decision-making and leadership roles; and
  • build up community characteristics and create a culture of equitable access to connectedness and belonging that protect against substance use disorder.

Natick 180 strives to champion diversity, equity and inclusion. The Coalition recognizes both substance use disorder and racism as public health crises and is committed to dismantling the policies, systems and structures that contribute to the discrimination and inequities that impact the lives of Natick community members. We welcome all individuals no matter their disability, race, culture, language, gender, economic circumstance, gender identity, sexual orientation, spiritual or religious background or age. Natick 180 empowers community members and fosters community conversations about substance use and mental health that are driven by empathy, respect, science and data.
