Barry Weiss     "Over the past six years as the chair or co-chair of the Onondaga County Drug Task Force I have learned about the various treatment options available in this community, state and region. I understand now that treatment means different things based on the stage of their addiction and there is not one avenue for everyone who is seeking help. Being able to find new avenues for treatment is vital to how we address the opioid crisis. Road2RecoveryCNY offers a pathway for those who want to get on the right side of their addiction and I am looking forward to helping them develop this form of treatment."

Timothy Endy, MD, MPH  "As a clinical Infectious Disease specialist and researcher. I have been touched by our substance use disorder epidemic in several meaningful ways. The first by caring for patients in the hospital who have had devastating and traumatic infections as a result of their addiction. The second is with our own son's struggles with addiction. The power of my son's recovery has created my passion for helping others with substance use disorder who lack the resources to obtain help."

Darlene Endy, MS, RD     "Watching my son battle his heroin addiction was paralyzing. I was helpless to stop him, and helpless to live my own life. When he finally became sober I decided to help other families find hope and healing like we had. My dream is that one day people with addiction will be treated with respect and compassion."
