The global pandemic is dominating the news but at Odyssey House, we are still working hard to reduce the deadly opioid epidemic that killed more than 67,000 Americans in 2019 – a tragic number that is predicted to increase significantly this year.
More than 1,500 vulnerable men and women count on our residential and outpatient services to keep them safe while they are in recovery. Our special programs treating women with children, older adults, teenagers, people with HIV/AIDS, and/or mental illness need these services more than ever.
Here, Odyssey House President Dr. Peter Provet talks about the critical role we play in protecting the lives of vulnerable New Yorkers. Please consider supporting our work – your donation will save lives.
We never close our doors and will not turn people away. We have implemented infection control measures, screenings, and telehealth services to keep all our clients and staff safe. Your help will strengthen these crucial services as we maintain our mission, and promise, to New Yorkers.
Thank you for your continued support of Odyssey House. We wish you and your loved ones safety and good health as we face the months ahead together as a community.
