During November, The City of New Haven held a press conference focusing on overdose prevention. Roughly $10 million in federal aid will flow to the New Haven area over the next five years to help municipal health departments take a regional approach in combating the opioid epidemic through the hiring of 10 case-management navigators and the cross-town sharing of overdose data.

Attending the event was our very own CEO Dr. Suzanne Lagarde, Addiction Medicine Case Manager and Latinx Outreach, Eddy Cordova-Coello, and Addiction Medicine Program Care Coordinator, Dabely Cruz-Jose.

While this grant will continue to help the city, we are well underway with our programs in place to help the residents of Fair Haven combat this epidemic.
