From Feb. 1 to June 30, 566 people overdosed on opioids. Eighty-five of those were fatal.
There are new numbers out Wednesday from the Monroe County's Sheriff's Office on the impact of the Monroe County Heroin Task Force.
Sheriff Todd Baxter says the aggressive action of the task force took 20,592 bags of heroine, 711 grams of cocaine and 21 firearms off the street and $300,600 in cash out of the hands of drug dealers.
Becky Baker likes what she heard from the sheriff, however, she says none of these efforts can have long term success if there's no place for people to go when they decide to get clean.
"I remember we were all at the dinner table and he said 'why should I spend $80 for OxyCotin when I can buy a bag of heroin for $10,'"said Baker.
Baker remembers the day when her son shared that revelation with her and her husband like it was just yesterday.
"I think both of us...we were in shock," Baker said."That's when I truly knew we had a huge problem with our kids and using."
Baker is the founder of Substance Overdose Awareness Recovery Services or S.O.A.R.S.
Back in February of 2016, Baker lost her 27-year-old son Scot to an overdose. Her daughter also struggles with an addiction.
Baker is encouraged to hear how aggressively the sheriff and the Monroe County Heroin Task Force is going after the opioid epidemic.
"We recovered over twenty thousand potential hits of heroin or fentanyl off the streets of Rochester," said Sheriff Baxter.
That's potentially 20,000 bags of death that didn't make it to the streets for sale.
But from Feb. 1 to June 30, 566 people overdosed on opioids. Eighty-five of those were fatal.
In the month of June, 15 people overdosed and died.
Baker has spent the past two and half years fighting to save the children of others, but she says it's an uphill climb with only 25 detox beds in the entire county.
"The hospitals could be doing so much." Baker said. "We call it 'treat 'em and street 'em.' These guys show up in the emergency room, they'll give them some IV fluid, a bag of chips and send them on their way."
Baker added, "There is a better way. S.O.A.R.S. is looking to find it and we are fundraising for detox and stabilization beds, because there is a better way."
