MONTICELLO – Catholic
Charities Community Services of Orange and Sullivan will receive over
$2 million in federal funds to fight opioid abuse in Sullivan and Ulster
Counties.

The money will be used to increase access to treatment, reduce unmet need,
and reduce overdose-released deaths in the two counties.

The regional funding will be used to support expanded peer services, tele-practice,
and mobile treatment services in identified high-need areas of the two
counties.

Catholic Charities of Orange and Sullivan CEO Dr. Dean Scher said the
money “will allow us to expand and enhance access to prevention,
treatment and recovery services in those hard to reach communities where
the need is high. People are dying and that needs to stop.”
