Minneapolis launches Safe Station Program for people with addictions

April 6, 2023

People looking for help from addiction can now stop by Fire Station 14 in Minneapolis any time, any day, all year. Safe Station serves anyone struggling with substance use. Community members can walk up to the station, ask for help, and talk with a certified peer recovery coach. The coach will connect them to services such as treatment, support during recovery, harm reduction and housing.

First responders see opioid use disorder more and more here and across the country. The Minneapolis Fire Department is a partner in the Minneapolis Addiction Recovery Initiative. This collaborative launched the Safe Station Program to help address the opioid epidemic.

Fire Station 14 is at 2002 Lowry Ave. N.
