WNY UNITED LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE FOR WNY CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY CONSORTIUM
The WNY Chemical Dependency Consortium is lead by a Board of Directors that represent Prevention, Treatment and Recovery. The mission of the Western New York Chemical Dependency Consortium is to assist in the development of a high-quality, accessible, cost-effective and wrap-around continuum of care system that represents prevention, treatment, recovery, education, housing, training and research services.
Last fall, WNY United Against Drug & Alcohol Abuse, Inc. received a grant through NY State OASAS to develop a region-wide coalition of community stakeholders across Erie, Niagara, Allegany, Chautauqua, and Cattaraugus counties which make up the Western Region Addiction Resource Collaborative. As part of this grant, WNY United was able to develop a new Chemical Dependency Consortium website,
The website www.wnycdc.com is a valuable tool for everyone to use. The site contains lists of Resources, broken down into Local and National, as well as by county for Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery. Lists of available Trainings, as well as a Speakers Bureau and current Materials can be found on the site.
This website is also the place to go for local coalitions to apply for project support. The applications are reviewed by the Community Action Partnership team on a monthly basis. The purpose of this coalition is to build capacity and support an array of Environmental Prevention Strategies across the region. To learn more about the WNY Chemical Dependency Consortium, or for materials, trainings, speakers, and resources, please visit www.wnycdc.com.
WNY United Against Drug & Alcohol Abuse, Inc. is a primary substance abuse prevention and education agency designed to increase awareness, educate and mobilize a broad cross-section of individuals and gro ups to participate actively in proven strategies to prevent substance abuse. Consistent with the latest research, WNY United recruits, develops and supports partnerships with schools, communities and businesses that work on creative and comprehensive solutions to problems caused by alcohol and other drug abuse.
