Recovery

Massachusetts Building Trades Unions support their members through trying times. Through your Health and Welfare benefits, many of which cover detox and treatment or by reaching out to your union’s recovery leaders, you will find the help you need. This page is designed to connect you directly to your local’s recovery leader and addiction recovery resources.

If you are struggling with addiction, or have a loved one who is struggling, please use the resources below to get help from your union or to find a weekly recovery meeting.
