The Syracuse Intervention Approach
Syracuse has put in place a three-pronged intervention approach for fighting heroin use. Each prong is linked to the other two, providing a holistic solution:
What brings the three elements together is the community, who must be educated on the dangers of heroin and other forms of drug, alcohol, and substance abuse. As such, programs have been developed in schools and community organizations, spearheaded by elected officials. Put together, it is hoped that this will provide people with the education and knowledge they need.
