Our Mission - Nuestra Misión
EASTIE: The East Boston Alliance for Support, Treatment, Intervention and Education is a coalition of community agencies and residents that mobilizes youth, families, community members and leaders to prevent and reduce substance misuse among youth and adults in our community. Members of the EASTIE coalition reflect the four areas in the name “EASTIE”: support, treatment, intervention and education. Those who are within the treatment and intervention community help other members better understand substance use disorders as well as the various treatment modalities.
Additionally, EASTIE supports education and prevention efforts by serving as “experts” by presenting at larger community forums and providing guest speakers for youth groups. Those who represent the “education” arm of EASTIE are well-versed in youth development. They can also provide access to a large portion of EB residents: schoolchildren, parents, sports’ teams, and faith communities—through which prevention and educational programming can be delivered.Learn More
