Mountain Top Cares Coalition

Mission: Mountain Top Cares Coalition is a nonprofit organization serving people with substance use disorders and issues of addiction in the mountain top communities of Greene County New York. Our mission is to promote recovery and empower those we serve and their families through advocacy, referrals, education, and peer support.


Vision: We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is not only possible but celebrated, and where all who seek recovery have access to the care and resources they need to achieve their goals. 


We believe:

  • Addiction is a chronic brain disease
  • Recovery is possible
  • Every life has value
  • We can best accomplish our mission with a neighbor helping neighbor approach
  • A stigma free and non-discriminatory world is needed for full recovery.

Naloxone (Narcan) is a medication designed to rapidly reverse an opioid overdose. It is an opioid antagonist, meaning that it binds to receptors in the brain and blocks the effects of opioids. It can quickly restore normal respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped due to overdosing with an opioid such as heroin or prescription medications.


We have started our Public Access Narcan (Narcan Box) Program. 

Narcan kits are now available at the Wellness Rx Pharmacy in Tannersville, NY, Higher Grounds Coffee Shop in Windham, The Mountaintop Library in Tannersville, NY, the 
Plaza Laundry in Prattsville, NY and the Halcott Grange, Halcott Center, NY.


The kits are made available for emergency use and to persons who feel they may need use of it in the future and to friends and family who have concerns about their loved ones. The kit is free, there is no charge.

If you require a narcan kit and reside on the mountain top (Ashland, Jewett, Haines Falls, Halcott, Hunter, Lexington, Maplecrest, Prattsville, Tannersville, Westkill, or Windham) please call and we will supply you with a kit.  518-560-4278
