REAP is a revolutionary and collaborative law enforcement approach to the opiate epidemic.
REAP aims to get people with addictions the help they need, instead of arresting them and putting them in handcuffs.

The program is available Monday - Friday from 7 am - 2 pm
Can I bring someone with me?
What is an "Angel"?
Angels are trained volunteers who are there to support you

Not all police departments are participating in REAP
Do I need health insurance to enter REAP?

Where will I go for treatment?
We will look at local treatment agencies first, but if there are no openings,
we will look in other areas of New York State
Can I bring in someone if they do not want treatment?
No - this is a voluntary program and all clients need to be ready to enter treatment
