We are families who have been affected by the opioid epidemic. We are providing this site to offer assistance with information, resources and direction to those who are struggling with opioid addiction. The family can assist their loved ones by being educated on this disease, learn disease management, be aware of available treatment options and ways to engage those who are in the grips of this addiction.
Our mission is to support the segments of the Erie County Opioid Epidemic Task Force to deliver improved services to those affected by Substance Use Disorder by fortifying the community response to attain our common goal of eliminating addiction, illness and death from opioid use, to advocate for our loved ones while eradicating this public health crisis from our community and our homes.
We envision a joint effort to:
show respect for all people
minimize health, legal and social harms associated with substance use
provide comfort and compassion to those affected by Substance Use Disorder
advocate for available, affordable, comprehensive therapeutic services for those affected by Substance Use Disorder
educate the public
focus on prevention and early identification
reduce harm among families and individuals
pursue legal enactments to further our goals.
Goals: Eliminate addiction, illness and death from opioid use.

The participating law enforcement agencies of the REAP program will not charge any person struggling with addiction (without an outstanding warrant) if the person presents themselves to the police department, with or without any drugs, and asks for help to get into treatment. The REAP program operates Monday through Friday, 7am—2pm.
“Every individual who comes into our police headquarters, regardless of their place of residence and their insurance status, will be helped. In addition, each person looking for help will be assigned an “Angel” to support the person through the intake process until they are referred into a treatment facility, whether that be inpatient or outpatient,” stated Town of Tonawanda Chief of Police, Jerry Uschold.
