Nopiates Committee has partnered with NYS OASAS to provide the community with a new and easy drug deactivation system that can be used at home. The Deterra pouch allows you to safely and permanently deactivate prescription medications, including opioids, at home. We have a limited number of Deterra pouches that we can provide to the families at no additional cost. Contact us for more info.
The NØPIATES Committee is a local grassroots organization developed by dedicated community members committed to raising addiction awareness. Devoted members work towards ending the shame and stigma associated with the disease of addiction. The Committee aims to raise awareness of the opioid epidemic, provide support and advocate for those who have been affected by substance use disorders. Committee members also offer educational and memorial events that focus on prevention, awareness and support for individuals and families affected by the disease of addiction.
