Raising three young children here Dr. Murphy knows firsthand how important it is to win the Hudson Valley’s War on Heroin.

As a Yorktown Councilman he led the fight to secure funding to revitalize the local narcotics unit which allows for more efficient and effective coordination between local and county law enforcement entities. In addition, Dr. Murphy has recently teamed up with the New York State Senate’s Task Force on Heroin and Opiod Addiction in an effort to supply first responders with narcan, the lifesaving drug used to reverse heroin overdoses.

Recognizing the importance of narcan administration, as a former EMT himself, Dr. Murphy has been trained and certified to use narcan in emergency situations.
