Preventing heroin overdoses

New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is spearheading an effort to equip more law enforcement officers with the heroin antidote Narcan. It takes just three minutes to revive a person overdosing on heroin or prescription pain medication by pushing the drug out of their system.

Mary Callahan, senior manager, director of Odyssey House Outpatient Services, was featured in a News 12 segment about the initiative. “By doing this, they’re saving an immeasurable amount of people from overdose,” she said.
