Substance Abuse

Substance Use Disorders

People with Substance Use Disorders and their loved ones face many challenges on their road to recovery.   Around 40% of people with these diagnoses, are also working to manage their mental health. During their time of active addiction and early recovery they are at high risk for suicide and unintentional overdose.  This is especially true for people who use multiple substances, inject substances, or who use opiates and/or alcohol.   

Harm reduction techniques can help reduce the risk of both suicide and overdose.  Treatment providers help individuals to develop safety plans, access resources in the community, develop coping skills for daily living, and build a support network.  Fortunately, there are many resources in our community that are listed provided below.

Narcan Availability

The New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute has an important pharmacy benefit for all New Yorkers who have prescription coverage through their health insurance plans: the Naloxone Co-payment Assistance Program (N-CAP).

The key elements of this program are:
Co-payments for naloxone in an amount up to $40 for each prescription dispensed will be billed to N-CAP, not to the individual getting naloxone.
Individuals who are themselves at risk for an overdose or their family members may acquire naloxone using a patient specific prescription, or through a standing order at over 2000 pharmacies in NYS.

No individual enrollment is necessary. Pharmacies participating in the New York State AIDS Drug Assistance Program are eligible to participate in N-CAP. There are no or lower out-of-pocket expenses when getting naloxone at a participating pharmacy.
Only the following naloxone formulations are eligible for N-CAP coverage:

Narcan® nasal spray (4mg/01 mL); NDC 69547-0353-02
Naloxone used for intranasal administration (1 mg/1 mL in 2 mL Luer-Jet™ pre-filled glass syringes); NDC 76329-3369-01
Naloxone for intramuscular injection (0.4 mg/mL in 1 mL single-dose vials); NDCs 00409-1215-01, 67457-0292-02, and 00641-6132-25

Your primary health care coverage may limit the monthly amount of naloxone that will be covered.
