SOUTH PORTLAND – As part of its continuing efforts to aid the state and community in addressing the opioid epidemic, the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation will be presenting a check to Operation HOPE on Saturday, Oct. 14. Chief Robert Moulton of the Scarborough Police Department is expected to speak briefly about Operation HOPE and accept the gift from Anthem BCBS.
The Scarborough Police Department started Operation HOPE in 2015, modeled after a successful program in Gloucester, Massachusetts. “With the number of [Maine] residents seeking treatment growing every year, a new approach is needed to assist our community and save lives,” Chief Mouton said.
Operation HOPE's mission is to enable Mainers suffering from addiction to seek help and experience recovery. The program aims to reduce overdose deaths and help people access lifesaving health treatment through its collaborative partnerships, regardless of insurance or income. Mainers from every corner of the State are turning to Operation HOPE for access to recovery services. Over 280 individuals have been helped by Operation HOPE to date.
The check presentation will take place during the Open House of the Scarborough Police and Fire Departments. For more information on Operation HOPE visit: www.operationhopemaine.org
