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.


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

Members include physicians, treatment providers, social service agencies, parents, individuals in recovery, residents of the community, clergy, Watertown Health Department, Watertown School Department, Watertown Police Department, Watertown Fire Department, Watertown Recreation Department, and elected officials.
