Mental Health in Albany

Drug addiction is a pressing issue in Albany County. Rather than arresting residents on drug charges, local police officers have the option of contacting a case manager who can provide support. Police officers are also equipped with naloxone—a drug used to reverse opioid overdose. When officers encounter residents who have overdosed on opioids, they can administer the drug and refer residents to Project Safe Point.  

Project Safe Point is a syringe-exchange program in Albany. Staff members from Project Safe Point may contact a resident one or two days after a police referral. The staff may offer the individual naloxone, clean syringes, or peer support. If a resident is ready to accept help, the program can refer them to substance abuse treatment.
