The Nantucket Rotary Supports the Fight to Reduce Opiod Addiction
We all know that the Opiod addiction crisis on Nantucket has reached an unprecedented level. In an effort to help combat this major health crisis on the island, The Rotary Club of Nantucket has completed an awareness campaign to share information of resources available to those seeking help for themselves, their families and/or friends with addiction issues. To that end we have created and now sponsor a new website at to provide information on where to get help. We have also completed a campaign to help Dr. Lepore's Addiction Solutions non profit to bring a much needed professional addiction counselor to his medication clinic. We have established a new 501(c)(3) fund at the Community Foundation for Nantucket called the Rotary Fund in order to accept tax deductible contributions towards this cause. During Daffodil weekend 2017 we hosted a fundraiser at the Great Harbor Yacht Club to present funds for Addiction Solutions to Dr. Lepore.
