Deaths from unintentional drug overdoses have exploded to crisis levels in just a short time. Local resources are now available to prevent addiction and avoid opioid overdose even as it’s happening.
Lancaster General Health has launched a new web page as part of its efforts to curtail opioid overdose occurrences. LGHealth.org/OverdosePrevention includes counseling and recovery resources, overdose warning signs and information on LG Health community outreach events. LG Health is part of the Lancaster County Overdose Prevention Collaborative.
Education, support, alternative pain treatments and overdose-reversal solutions such as naloxone, can help stop drug addiction and tragic deaths in our families and communities.
