The Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse will open the Opioid Treatment Program or OTP on August 13th.
This will allow patients in Genesee, Orleans, and Wyoming counties to receive highly regulated and monitored methadone to treat their opioid addiction.
The organization points to research showing that most communities with similar programs have decreased rates of crime because people are not stealing to maintain their drug use.
GCASA has been serving Genesee and Orleans Counties for over 40 years and providing Medication Assisted Treatment since 2004.

It’s up to railroad companies themselves to do that work.
Right now, there are only three inspectors assigned by the F-R-A to look at the state’s roughly three-thousand railroad bridges.
