Since 2020, Mountain Top Cares Coalition (MCC) has engaged over 300 individuals affected by substance use through various forms of support, including care, group meetings, trainings, events, and resource brokerage. This highlights the high demand for MCC's services.
In 2021, the upstate NY crude rate of opioid overdose was 23.5 and the rate in Greene County was 46.3, almost double the average of upstate NY counties. 42 Greene County residents died of overdose between 2019 and 2021. 50% of those deaths occurred in 2021, alone.
Donations will assist MCC in offering more frequent Narcan trainings, provide increased community awareness through educational campaigns, and to increase public Narcan Kits to maximize accessibility.
CRPAs bring recovery expertise, training, and personal experiences to enhance treatment engagement and dedication. They foster connections to supportive resources, aid community education, and align with discharge plans. To meet growing demand and uphold our support commitment, MCC aims to hire another qualified CRPA by January 2025.
