The University of Buffalo will be conducting research as to why this is occurring. The National Institute of Drug Abuse is providing a $2.3 million grant to fund the research, which will be conducted from June 2013 to February 2018.

At Harbor Village, clients with substance abuse problems can check in and begin a proven step-by-step program to help them become sober.
