Mental Health in White Plains

Opioid-related deaths in Westchester County have increased more than 200% between 2010 and 2015. The county’s anti-drug program, called “Project WORTHY”, has brought together leaders from community service organizations, public health, and law enforcement to tackle the drug crisis. Current plans include reducing addiction stigma, increasing access to treatment, and establishing county-led training sessions on how to use opioid antidotes like naloxone. 

Westchester County has also filed a lawsuit against pharmaceutical companies in response to the local opioid epidemic. The county claims companies that made and distributed opioids misled the public about the risks of their drugs. County officials believe the companies’ illicit behavior led to the opioid crisis, forcing the county to spend excessive tax dollars on law enforcement, addiction treatment programs, and other initiatives.
