News: Police host naloxone training for community

In response to a run of opioid overdoses, the Yarmouth police are co-sponsoring a training of lay persons in the community, so that there will be more naloxone in the community should future overdoses occur. 

This rapid response is made possible by the naloxone program supported by and run through the State health department, and raises the very intriguing concept that naloxone may have stark benefit in settings of overdose "outbreaks."
