Montco Takes Pro-Active Steps in Battle against Heroin and Other Opioid Use

 

Norristown, PA (October 15, 2015) – Montgomery County continues to take aggressive steps in its battle to reduce the number of heroin and opioid-related overdoses in the county. At the bi-weekly meeting of the Montgomery County Commissioners Thursday, Commissioner Val Arkoosh, who is also the interim medical director of the county health department, announced that she has issued a countywide standing order for naloxone, also known as narcan. The standing order allows any licensed pharmacy in the county, which chooses to participate, to dispense naloxone to individuals at risk of a heroin or opioid-related overdose, or to close friends or family of someone at risk.

 

Commissioners approved a new structure for Health and Human Services for Montgomery County
