“Addiction is a disease that affects members of every community, regardless of age, gender, or other factors, and it is important that people know that help is available, and recovery is possible,” said Arlene González-Sánchez, commissioner of the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. “New York State is working tirelessly to end the stigma against addiction and treatment, and get people access to the help they need to rebuild their lives.”
