Taking Action to Combat Heroin and Opioid Abuse



The New York State Senate continues to build upon its record of tackling the heroin and opioid epidemic head-on by passing a package of legislation that addresses many of the issues raised by the Senate’s Joint Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Addiction. The measures focus on addiction prevention, access to treatment, and support for New Yorkers in recovery - adding critical new tools to the state’s arsenal to fight the heroin and opioid abuse crisis.
