Held in conjunction with National Recovery Month, Project COPE, an affiliate of Bridgewell, held an open house on September 14 at our new clinic on 66 Silsbee Street in Lynn.
Since 1970, Project COPE has been a leading provider of community-based prevention, education and treatment for individuals and their families struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Project COPE merged with Bridgewell in January 2014.
The event featured remarks from Congressman Seth Moulton, Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett and Lynn Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy. All three speakers discussed initiatives their respective offices are taking on to address the rise in opioid addiction that has plagued the community, and many others, in recent years.
The new clinic, located at 66 Silsbee Street, offers individual, group and family counseling services. As a standalone facility, the clinic provides a safe and secure environment for individuals and families struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. It also allows for flexible night and weekend hours, ensuring convenient and accessible care.

“Opening this new outpatient clinic is an important step for our community,” said Mark Kennard, Executive Director of Project COPE. “Through our partnership with Bridgewell, we are able to address this public health epidemic with personalized care that goes beyond typical clinical services and caters to each individual, helping get them to the next step in their recovery.”
Bridgewell’s Project COPE offers a full continuum of care for recovering addicts and their families. Services include specialized behavioral health programs, residential treatment, recovery housing, young adult diversion and employee assistance programming.
