Substance Use Disorder Fair Shines Light on Treatment Options Locally

Posted: Updated:
JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. -

Broome County has seen a number of local people affected by the opioid epidemic. In light of this, the Broome County Opioid Abuse Council held a “Substance Use Disorder Treatment Fair”

Booths were set up at the Oakdale Mall for representatives from UHS, various self help and faith based groups and professional treatment services throughout the area. Organizers hope the event will highlight the many services available to those struggling in the Southern Tier.

"We just want to get the word out there that there is help available so if someone is having a problem with addiction, or has a family  that member is having a problem with addiction, they can get help," said Katherine Cusano, Behavior Health Administrator of Broome County. She went on to say, "this is our first services fair in a very long time, so we just felt that it was needed so that people understand that there is help here locally."
