Mayor Warren is Leading the Fight Against Heroin

Mayor Lovely Warren and the City of Rochester launched a comprehensive operation to reverse the plague of heroin sales and use along North Clinton Avenue.

“Just like heroin destroys the minds and bodies of its users, it is destroying this neighborhood. Today, I am proud to announce that we have staged an intervention and we are going to detoxify North Clinton Avenue. I fully understand the complex realities of drug addiction and realize we cannot eliminate heroin use in our city overnight. But the first step of recovery is to handle the most pressing crisis - and this neighborhood is in crisis. We are going to purge heroin from this neighborhood and deal with what comes next.”
