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.
