Prevention Partners of Northern Middlesex (PPNM)

The Town of Tewksbury is a part of the Prevention Partners of Northern Middlesex (PPNM). The Prevention Partners of Northern Middlesex (PPNM) is a collaboration of eight communities who work closely together to help reduce substance misuse with specific intentions for youth under the age of 18. Each community is a part of MassCALL3-Greater Lowell (MC3-GL. The Massachusetts Collaborative for Action, Leadership, and Learning 3 (MassCALL3) grant initiative is a grant cycle that builds upon successes of previous prevention efforts and concentrates on substances of first use (alcohol, cannabis, and nicotine) through a trauma-informed health equity lens in our youth. Referred to as MassCall3, these efforts involve these eight communities, with the Town of Tewksbury being the lead.

If any questions or inquiries pertaining to PPNM or MC3-GL, please contact Prevention Program Manager, Maria Ruggiero at
