Governor Proposed Drug Recovery High Schools
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he will propose legislation to start “recovery” high schools for students suffering from substance abuse.
The Governor is making stops across the state, delivering regional state of the state addresses. He says he wants to see one school downstate and one upstate to help high school students who are addicted to drugs.
The Democrat’s plan is to have the New York State Office for Alcoholism and Substance Abuse and local social service agencies to oversee the schools.
Any proposal would need approval from the State Legislature.
Meanwhile, the State Board of Regents was considering making the overdose reversal drug: Narcan available in all schools in the state.
