The New Paltz Opioid Prevention Team (OPT) is a collaborative partnership working together to address the needs of the community, and provide hope and help to those facing the challenges caused by a substance use disorder.  Our members work with an extremely large network of dedicated people and organizations across Ulster County and the Mid-Hudson Region. 

You will find a selection of their logos, links, and program offerings here, as this site serves as resource for members of the community who may need a a wide variety of services that are designed to meet different needs.
