Our initiative is aimed at preventing substance use and providing recovery resources in Lynnfield.
Our Mission is to empower residents to make positive choices every day. Together, we work to prevent substance misuse, improve the quality of life for those impacted, and to support programs that help all young people thrive.
In an effort to promote a healthier and safer community, and in response to the rising misuse of opioids, the Town of Lynnfield formed The Lynnfield Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, known as A Healthy Lynnfield (AHL).
Through coalition building, engagement of stakeholders, and implementation of proven best practices, municipal leaders in the Town of Lynnfield aim to reverse this crisis, save lives, and create healthy, safe and thriving community. In May 2017, the Lynnfield Board approved the formation of a committee to address the misuse of substances.
Today, A Healthy Lynnfield is an active community partnership and a 501(c)3 charitable organization working hard to prevent substance misuse and to ensure those impacted have the help they need.
