SARATOGA, N.Y. (NEWS10) – New York will fund six new recovery centers to help people trying to overcome heroin and opioid addiction.

Governor Cuomo announced that $10.5 million in state money will be given out over the next five years. He says the centers will provide a community-based, non-clinical setting that will welcome those who need help.

Here in the Capital Region the funding is going to “The Prevention Council” located in Saratoga Springs.
