ECHO-Essex County Heroin & Opioid Coalition

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).

Rx Awareness Campaign

Naloxone Co-Payment Assistance Program (N-CAP)

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.
