To lessen the impact of substance use disorders in our community in a thoughtful and compassionate manner.

The Watertown Access to Treatment, Education and Resources (W.A.T.E.R.town) Task Force for Substance Use Disorders was created in 2015 as a local response to the nationwide crisis of substance use disorder.

In 2020, the Task Force transitioned to the Watertown Cares Network. Its members use local and regional data to develop a range of initiatives aimed at prevention, education, treatment, and support for anyone in our community affected by substance use.
