Howard Center's Safe Recovery Program
Grace Keller is the Program Coordinator for Howard Center's Safe Recovery Program, Vermont's oldest and largest syringe service program. In that capacity, she has had extensive hands-on experience providing case management support to clients who struggle with opioid dependence. In addition, she frequently provides testimony for the Vermont State Legislature on bills related to substance use, recovery, and treatment, such as the 911 Good Samaritan Act and the Naloxone Bill. In 2013, she was instrumental in implementing Vermont's first community based naloxone program through Safe Recovery. The program provides naloxone to clients, their families, and community providers. Safe Recovery recently started a low barrier buprenorphine program that provides on demand access to members of the syringe service porgram. Grace has a B.A. from Trinity College in Hartford, CT.
