METHODOLOGY:

This bill requires referral and assessment for placement at the Sununu Youth Services Center (SYSC) of youth administered Narcan for a heroin overdose.  The Department of Health and Human Services is unable to determine the number of individuals who would be placed at the SYSC as a result of this bill, but notes that the per diem cost of placement is $420.  Assuming that a youth were placed at the SYSC for the maximum ten months allowed by the bill, the cost per child would be approximately $128,000.
