What New Hope Manor Offers
New York State’s Opioid Overdose Prevention Program
“Drug overdose is a serious public health concern and opioid-related overdose has increased as a health threat. A life-saving law took effect on April 1, 2006, making it legal in New York State for non-medical persons to administer Naloxone to another individual to prevent an opioid/heroin overdose from becoming fatal. All registered opioid overdose programs are furnished Naloxone (Narcan) by the NYSDOH. It is a prescription medicine that reverses an overdose by blocking heroin (or other opioids) in the brain for 30 to 90 minutes.” (https://www.health.ny.gov/diseases/aids/general/opioid_overdose_prevention/)
New Hope Manor is a registered opioid overdose program.
All New Hope Manor staff are trained to administer Naloxone; this training is also offered to clients, their families, friends and sober supports.
