The report is a summary of the Vigo County opioid crisis in the larger state and national context. It includes both data analysis and results from the conversations we held with community members. This landscape scan provided a “three-dimensional” observation—a look not only at the statistics, but an inclusion of the community voices to highlight the most significant pain points for real people living with this epidemic.
Naloxone is a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It is an opioid antagonist—meaning that it binds to opioid receptors and can reverse and block the effects of other opioids, such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone. Administered when a patient is showing signs of opioid overdose, naloxone is a temporary treatment and its effects do not last long. Therefore, it is critical to obtain medical intervention as soon as possible after administering/receiving naloxone. (SAMHSA)
Naloxone kits and training can be obtained locally at no cost at the Wabash Valley Recovery Center (WVRC) or by contacting Overdose Lifeline. Through WVRC’s partnership with Overdose Lifeline, funding is made possible by the Division of Mental Health and Addiction through the Indiana State Opioid Response grant.
