Addiction can happen to anyone, any family, at any time.
Essex County Health Department has initiated a local response to the abuse of Prescription (Rx) drugs and heroin in Essex County. We’ve gathered community partners and co-chair the Essex County Heroin and Opioid Prevention Coalition (known as ECHO).
Check out OPIOIDS – THE TRUTH site – to learn more about the opioid epidemic – personal stories, the science of addiction, what’s going on nationally, being part of the solution and finding help if you need it.
Naloxone is an emergency medication that can reverse an opioid overdose.
Local pharmacies can provide this medication to you through what is called a “standing order” – meaning you do not need an individual prescription for it.
