Opioid Response Program


According to the CDC, over 100,000 people in the United States died of a drug overdose in 2021.  At Catskill Hudson AHEC we are committed to addressing the opioid epidemic as a public health crisis through:  

  • Community, student, and provider education
  • Expanding access to treatment
  • Reducing the harm and stigma associated with substance use disorder (SUD) 


We collaborate with our community partners to host events that work towards these goals and provide a variety of trainings for healthcare professionals, first responders, and the community.
