Below are Mario Rosser’s thoughts on oversaturation of addiction programs in Harlem and East Harlem:
I will advocate for a bottom up approach to substance use programs in our community. The top down approach has harmed Harlem in real ways. We need to stop providing funds to the same programs but expecting different results. As City Councilmember, I would deploy the convening power of our City Council office to ensure providers in our community coordinate to save lives instead of competing for dollars.
