Expanding Efforts to Treat Opioid Overdoses
Addiction to opioids such as heroin, morphine, and prescription pain relievers continues to challenge the social and economic wellbeing of counties big and small. Heroin use specifically has increased dramatically in the past five years, and subsequently, overdose-related deaths more than doubled from 2011 to 2014. The ability to address the problem with overarching results seems consistently just out of reach.
 
In an effort to provide assistance with this national epidemic, the National Association of Counties, the National Governors Association, the National League of Cities, and the United States Conference of Mayors with the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance, Premier, Inc., and Adapt Pharma are now offering NARCAN® Nasal Spray at a 40-percent discount.
