Who is Edwina Martin?

A Pioneer In Substance Abuse Treatment for Women

Brockton resident Edwina L. Martin was a long-time volunteer and activist  for local alcohol and drug programs. She ran an information and referral center  and provided personal assistance and advocacy for the sick and suffering. Her  years of effort culminated in the establishment in 1982 of the women’s recovery  house which bears her name - The Edwina Martin House. Catholic Charities of Boston operated the House  before turning it over to the non-profit EMH Recovery, Inc. in 2004.

We're Raising Awareness About The Opioid Epidemic

Did you know that between 1999 and 2017 over 700,000 people died from overdoses of opioid medication or illicit opioid substances. 
In 2017 alone, around 70,200 drug overdose deaths involved an opioid drug.
In 2017, the number of overdose deaths involving opioids (including prescription opioids and illegal opioids like heroin and illicitly manufactured fentanyl) was 6 times higher than in 1999.

These are just some of the ugly statistics surrounding this problem, (more reading here) which have motivated The ANABASIS produce a concept album about the opioid epidemic.   

We are going to donate 100% of the revenue generated by sales of our new album to benefit the Edwina Martin House!

More details coming soon!
