The state of West Virginia ranks 1st for opioid-related overdose death in the United States. In 2017, there were 833 identified overdose deaths per 100,000 people. (cit.) If you are a person who uses drugs or if you are around people who use drugs, please consider learning how to respond to an opioid overdose and carrying naloxone (intranasal brand name: Narcan). Naloxone is a medication designed to reverse an opioid overdose. Opioids slow down the activity of the central nervous system. One effect of this is slowed or stopped breathing which could lead to death.
