Dinner & Auction Surpasses Fundraising Goal!

Manet Community Health Center's Annual Dinner & Auction was a huge success thanks to the generosity and support of scores of local businesses, organizations and individuals. More than 400 people attended the gala event on Wednesday, May 27, 2015. The beautiful evening at Granite Links Golf Club raised nearly $145,000, which will enable Manet to increase health care access for residents of the South Shore and Southeastern MA through expanded programs, services and operational advancements.

Nasal Narcan Overdose Reversal Program

Manet Community Health Center is addressing the growing problem of opioid overdoses in South Shore communities with a free program to distribute a drug that has the potential to reverse overdoses and save lives. Manet’s effort is part of a pilot initiative by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Opioid Prevention and Reversal Project.

Presently, Manet has the largest team from Quincy to Brockton that distributes nasal naloxone (Narcan)—known as the anti-overdose drug—and trains area residents in its use on a daily basis by walk-in or appointment (call 857-939-4108). Anyone can receive the free training, whether or not they are a Manet patient. Evening hours are available.
