Governor Cuomo Signs Historic Legislation to Combat Heroin

No community is immune to heroin or prescription opioid addiction.  Heroin abuse and misuse is a problem in rural, suburban and urban communities across the state.  Public awareness and community involvement are key factors in addressing this problem.

When a community joins together to address a serious issue, such as opioid and heroin addiction, they can accomplish great things.  No one can stop this problem by themselves.  Coming together to address the problem of opioid and heroin addiction is an important step in combating this issue.
