OSWEGO, N.Y. - Oct. 29, 2018 - PRLog -- The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will award an addiction treatment center in Oswego, New York to help combat the opioid crisis.

Announced by U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, the funding comes from both SAMHSA and the Department of Human and Health Services.

The addiction treatment center, Farnham Family Services, will gain medication-assisted treatment (MAT) funding for the next three years. The grant will go toward giving the addiction treatment center buprenorphine.

Along with buprenorphine, the substance abuse treatment center will also eventually be adding naltrexone to its opioid treatment program later in the year.

Farnham Family Services, which also has a facility in Fulton, New York is a not-for-profit organization that offers comprehensive substance abuse treatment and prevention services, which incorporate seminars at home, in schools and throughout the community. Its substance abuse treatment services include an outpatient suboxone program as well as an outpatient peer support program.

The center, which assists over 200 people a day, also provides behavioral health programs for people struggling with mental health disorders. Last year, Farnham became the only licensed opioid addiction treatment center in the county. Right now, Farnham is delivering MAT to over 120 people in the county.
