City News IG

In a continued effort to combat the rising concerns of addiction, drug overdose and related mental health incidents within the community, the City has partnered with the National Council of Addiction and Drug Dependency (NCADD)-Westchester to provide resources and education to residents. 

The approach will be multi-pronged and will include the following key initiatives: 

  • Monthly “Community Conversations”: To foster greater awareness and employ effective prevention strategies, meetings will be held in neighborhoods across the City on the topics of addictions and co-occurring disorders, including mental health. 
  • Deployment of Naloxbox Kits: 10 public emergency intervention Naloxbox kits will be installed at high traffic areas throughout the City, for immediate assistance to individuals experiencing an opioid overdose. 
  • -Crisis Intervention Training: Residents will be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to             respond effectively to addiction and mental health emergencies with Narcan and related trainings. Additionally, safety plans for homes and neighborhoods will be developed, further bolstering the community’s resilience.

“This partnership supports our City’s proactive approach to combating the opioid and drug crisis and related disorders, and will put essential knowledge and resources in the hands of residents as we together build a safer and healthier future,” said City Manager Kathleen Gill.

This month’s “Community Conversation” will be held on October 26 at Young Israel, 1149 North Avenue, New Rochelle. For more information, contact Charles Curtis, Director of Community Engagement or (914) 654-8929.  A resource guide with information on drug and alcohol addiction services can be found on the City website at
