    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.
          When can I enter the REAP Program? 
                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 
          Why can't I go to any police station?
                Not all police departments are participating in REAP 
          Do I need health insurance to enter REAP?   
                No - we will work to connect you to treatment even if you have no insurance 
          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 
          What happens after hours (2 pm - 7 am)?
                The Addictions Hotline (716) 831-7007 is available 24/7 and can connect you
