"The opioid addiction crisis continues to explode across the state and the city and very few families are left untouched by it. Substance use disorder is a public health crisis the likes we have not seen in decades, and we must commit to fight to go with every available tool we have. The state must finance robust prevention, treatment and recovery services in locations that are geographically convenient for those who are struggling," said Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal, Chair of the Committee on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse during a public hearing held by the Committee on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse to examine the adequacy of funding for prevention, treatment, and recovery services within the State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2017-2018 Enacted Budget.
