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
