What Could WE Have Done,
An Opioid PSA by Amudim
Referral Services to Proper Treatment:
Every person that comes to us is unique, making it imperative for us to tailor our referrals to them and their specific circumstances.
Amudim has established relationships with numerous clinicians, treatment centers, outpatient programs and more, so that we could we make the most suitable referrals, and best guide people on the important steps necessary to achieve a long term positive outcome. All too often people equate price with success, believing that extremely expensive programs, which are usually beyond the means of clients and their families, are the best choice. Our caring and knowledgeable staff work tirelessly to provide the best affordable. Individualized care. We not only identify high-quality options that are very often approved by the client’s insurance providers, but we also offer insurance advocacy when possible and obtain single case agreements or scholarships.
As prevention is always the key to dealing with serious issues, Amudim’s community awareness events focus on breaking the stigma relating to sexual abuse and addiction. Our events feature presentations on the communal response to these issues and speeches by seasoned professionals and community leaders, who address difficult topics, such as the long term effects of abuse and addiction, with the utmost sensitivity.
OPIOID OVERDOSE PREVENTION:
training and distribution:
Licensed by both the New York State and New York City Departments of Health, Amudim offers Narcan training classes, teaching the public how to administer this lifesaving opioid antidote. Temporarily reversing the effects of opioid overdose, Narcan provides a window of opportunity for victims to be treated at a hospital, often bringing them back from the brink of death. Narcan has no known side effects and works only on opioids such as heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone, morphine, methadone, codeine and others.
A proud partner with the NYPD’s Community Affairs Bureau, Amudim has been working hand in hand with the NYPD to provide Narcan training to the public, using our combined resources to bring this life-saving medication and awareness programming to the general public.
More than 49,000 Americans died of opioid overdoses in 2017, a number that continues to increase annually.
Drugs, alcohol, gambling, internet, sex and pornography addictions can wreak havoc on an individual. Without proper intervention and professional help, the situation will spiral out of control until it is beyond repair.
Fighting the substance abuse epidemic requires not just caring and knowledge but also the ability to act swiftly, in the most professional manner. Amudim’s staff members, as well as those in our extensive network, are able to address crisis situations with speed, skill, and compassion. Medical treatment, therapy, and inpatient rehabilitation are often the first critical step, but follow up, tackling underlying issues and reintroduction to normalcy are the end goals.
