Good morning!

As always, it was great “seeing” you on Friday!

We received information on an alarming increase in overdoses in Richmond City and anecdotally we hear that it is true across the state!

I need some quick responses on the following questions:

  • Is your area seeing an escalation in overdoses? Opioids, meth, alcohol?
  • Are you seeing an increase in alcohol/drug related vehicle accidents?
  • Are you seeing an increase in suicides?
  • Is anyone in your area providing naloxone trainings near COVID testing sites?
  • From a prevention standpoint, what strategies can be employed immediately with additional resources?

In advance, thank you for your quick posts!!! Gail
