Opioids: A Growing Epidemic

The use of opioids and opioid overdose is an increasing issue across the nation, with extreme affects being felt close to home.

To combat this growing epidemic, Samaritan Treatment & Recovery Services has been awarded a three-year federal grant in East Linn County, making Narcan more readily available to community members. In addition to Narcan kit distribution, efforts will be focused on enhancing prevention through educational means and support efforts through various community partners throughout the region.
