Are you a building trades member who's struggling? Your union can help with recovery.

Yesterday marked the official launch of MBTC – Recovery, a website designed to help members and their dependents reach out to their union and peers to help with recovery. Find your union’s weekly recovery meeting and make a direct call to your union’s recovery leader.

There’s no stigma or shame in reaching out. Take the first step in your recovery today.

Unions lead the way in connecting construction workers with counseling, treatment, and peer support, all free of charge, for those struggling with addiction. On Wednesday, U.S. Labor Secretary Walsh helped launch the newly-created Massachusetts Building Trades Recovery Council, and we are proud our union is a part of this effort. 

“As a former construction worker and someone in long-term recovery, I am grateful to my partners and friends at the Massachusetts Building Trades Council for taking their support for recovery to the next level. This report and these new initiatives will help countless workers get access to recovery services, reduce the stigma that prevents people from getting help, and advance our fight to end the epidemic of addiction that impacts every part of our country,” stated Walsh.
