2 important Narcan training sessions offered this week

The battle against opioid addiction continues to make headlines in New York State and here in the Hudson Valley. According to the state dashboard, the situation is improving but if you look at the information from the counties that make up the Hudson Valley, we still have some way to go.

In the various counties that make up the Mid-Hudson region on the New York State Department of Health’s website dashboard for opioid data, you can see progress in the opioid crisis, but you can also see that there are areas that have actually gotten worse. This is why community groups are so important.
