Local officials hope to form a formal support network for addicts and their families, despite learning this month that they will not receive money for the project from the Blue Hills Community Health Alliance. “We’ll see what we can get done, with or without funding,” said Lyn Frano, who works in the Weymouth Health Department as coordinator of the town’s Substance Abuse Prevention Team. Her group had teamed up with the Weymouth Fire Department, South Bay Mental Health, Manet Community Health Center, and Learn to Cope to apply for a $6,800 grant, she said. The money would have been used for education and referrals for families dealing with drug addiction, including printing information sheets, creating a website, and forming a Learn to Cope support group in Weymouth, Frano said.
