Executive Director David Attridge says anyone looking for treatment can come to the center to begin that process.

And the support services extend to families and loved ones of someone who may be addicted.

"We may get parents who come in for the first time and say, 'I just found out my kid  is using, what do I do?'  And we begin to work with them, getting them support, also," he said.

Attridge says the center offers free Narcan training, along with plenty of resources to help people recover.

The Brockport drop-in center is open on the second Tuesday of each month, from 6 to 8 p.m.
