Below are Sheba Simpson’s thoughts on oversaturation of addiction programs in Harlem and East Harlem:
As a long time Harlemite, I have witnessed first hand how drugs have decimated our community. It is not a secret that it was and continues to be done purposely. I will continue to speak out against the over saturation of substance treatment facilities in our neighborhoods. I will fight to stop Harlem from being ground zero for more facilities to open in our community. Every borough should have its fair share of responsibility in helping people get the assistance they need to become drug free.
