Under historic legislation signed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo,  the Combat Addiction website was developed to fight the growing heroin and prescription opioid epidemic in New York State.

Recognizing that addiction can happen to anyone, to any family, at anytime, this website will assist people seeking information about heroin and prescription opioid addiction.  This website includes: 1) the warning signs of addiction; 2)  helpful hints for having conversations with young people; 3) information on accessing treatment; and 4) guidance on getting involved in your community. Video clips will be included with real New Yorkers sharing their experiences with this chronic disease. You will meet family members and friends who have lost loved ones due to an overdose as well as young people living in recovery.  Additionally, the website includes links to flyers and resources for download.
