San Joaquin County Aims to Ensure At-Risk Residents Have Narcan on Hand
SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY -- San Joaquin County is continuing to battle the opioid crisis head-on, using a grant to provide families and agencies with Narcan to combat overdoses. The department has had over 900 doses of Narcan, commonly known as naxolone, to give since November. They said they have seen an increase in families coming in for it since Demi Lovato’s apparent overdose over a week ago, even though that was not directly connected to opioids.
