On Thursday November 7th 2019 Rachel Pezzuto of PAARI will be working as an advocate to help individual and families deal with addiction. Rachel, who will work in conjunction with Danielle Csogi of Lahey Health will be working every Thursday at the Danvers Police Depart. as a recovery coach from 10 AM to 2 PM. This position is part of a grant from the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative (PAARI) through the Evelyn Lilly Lutz Foundation.
Though she officially spends each Thursday in Danvers conducting outreach to families and individuals coping with addiction, Rachel makes herself available any day of the week. She also helps by connecting those struggling with addiction to treatment and recovery services. If you’re in a place where you’re either afraid to ask or ashamed to ask or don’t know where to go, certainly start asking questions. It’s your life — you are worth it and there are resources available.
