Huntington Opioid Abuse Services


It’s no secret that Huntington is a community struggling with severe opioid abuse, and, as a result, sees above-average rates of drug use, overdose deaths, and drug-dependent newborns. Huntington, at one time, led the State in overdoses, and has been a strong national contender for opioid addiction as well. State and City leaders have worked tirelessly for several years to combat the epidemic, and we are seeing positive results. One of the reasons we are seeing positive results is because we have amazing community partners with leaders who devote their lives to helping those in need.
