Task force formed to address heroin, opiate addiction concerns

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. -- The New York Senate is responding to the rising concern of heroin and opiate addiction in the state by forming a task force to find the best ways to take it on.

Senator Kathy Marchione is among the members picked to serve on the force.  She will join senators who already serve on other committees dealing with health and substance abuse.

The task force will travel the state, with the goal of issuing recommendations on the best ways for New York to put a stop to addiction, and prevent drug related crimes.
