ALBANY — A state-supported outreach center for people and families struggling with substance abuse has opened in the Bronx, Gov. Cuomo announced Thursday.

The Odyssey House Recovery Center is located inside the Davidson Community Center on Davidson Avenue in the Bronx and offers an array of free services, including wellness classes, recovery skill-building, and employment readiness programs.

The center is supported by a $1.75 million grant from the state Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services.

“This new recovery center is vital to breaking the cycle of addiction and helping Bronx residents in need,” Cuomo said. “We have taken bold action to confront the opioid epidemic in this state, and with this recovery center we are one step closer to a stronger and healthier New York for all.”
