The City of Malden is pleased to announce that as of March 8, 2023, the Malden Teen Health Center (Center) at Malden High School, which is run by Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), has been hosting the Recovery Coach Program on site every Thursday from 11 a.m. to noon. Located at Malden High School, the Center offers primary care services from physicals to immunizations, mental health care from evaluations to support, and sexual and reproductive care education to Malden youth from 12-24 years of age.
Malden Recovery Coaches Paul Hammersley and Paul “PJ” Bell will run the effort and have many years of experience promoting recovery to those seeking or already in recovery from drug and/or substance abuse. They will assist individuals through a one-on-one peer support system and will help patients navigate the treatment system, promote recovery, help to remove stigma barriers, connect people with recovery support services and encourage hope and optimism and promote healthy living. Paul and PJ will be excellent resources for students who might need guidance and support for themselves, a family member or a friend.
For further information, please contact the City of Malden’s Addiction Recovery Resource Specialist, Paul Hammersley, at firstname.lastname@example.org. To schedule an appointment with the Center, please call 781-338-0101.
