Compating the Opioid Crisis


Local churches will be hosting an event about the opioid crisis and Narcan. This   crisis has swept across our nation and left many broken families and deaths in its wake. More than 72,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2017, including   illicit drugs and prescription opioids—a 2-fold increase in a decade. Guest speaker Nicole Browning with NCADA will help people understand substance abuse         disorders related to opioids, from pills to heroin. A discussion on Narcan, (naloxone) a prescription medicine that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose will be presented. This will be an event for all ages and backgrounds, everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
