East Harlem has many commonalities with the South Bronx in terms of population, history, infrastructure, and governmental relations.
A map of the density of opioid treatment programs (as licensed by OASAS) shows the clear linkage.
Note how CB11 (East Harlem) has the largest opioid capacity in New York City. OASAS has packed programs in East Harlem repeatedly and forced East Harlem to serve addicted New Yorkers who reside in the gray areas on the map.
