Efforts ramp-up to help New Yorkers facing drug addiction

Overdose deaths from fentanyl, heroin and other opioids have become a serious public health crisis.
Now, there are more efforts to help New Yorkers struggling with an addiction.

The State Office of Addiction Services and Supports says they’ve seen an overwhelming number of people attend its free naloxone training session at the New York State Fair in Syracuse.

They want to let people know that there are more training sessions online, and you can receive free naloxone kits.
