Modern Assistance Programs (MAP)

Workers in the construction industry handle physically demanding jobs that can lead to pain and injury. Local 4 understands that substance abuse and mental health issues know no bounds and that the effect on a family can be devastating.

If you, a family member, or a friend is struggling with substance abuse or mental health issues, Local 4 is here to help.

It’s OK to ask for help. Call (617) 774-0331 for help today.

Our health plan partners with Modern Assistance Programs, or MAP, which provides a range of services, including support for mental health, substance abuse, and work-life balance. MAP has oversight of inpatient substance abuse claims so that our members and families receive one-on-one support and close-to-home treatment at high-quality facilities.

MAP also conducts regular drug testing to renew your Workplace Safety Card.

In addition, Local 4 Training Instructor Andy Franzen has been trained to serve as a confidential conduit between members and their families and MAP’s service offerings. Andy will listen, provide support, and help steer members and their families in the right direction. In case of a life-or-death emergency, Andy will have Narcan to reverse the consequences of an overdose.

Andy can be reached at (781) 364-6322 or
