Odyssey House gets grant for program that treats older adults with substance abuse

The Odyssey House in the Bronx received a new grant to help older adults get treatment for substance abuse.



The New York State Department of Health gave more than $445,000 to the Odyssey House for its new program, Serving Older Adults Recovery System.



The program uses one-on-one mentoring and community activities to help older adults overcome addiction. It also helps those coming out of transitional housing get back into the community by reconnecting with family or finding employment.



Patients tell News 12 The Bronx the program has changed their lives.
