Local News: A service of Reid Health

(Richmond, IN)--The group Heroin is Here and local law enforcement agencies are dealing with something relatively new as they work to prevent overdose deaths.  Officials say Narcan parties have reportedly been occurring in the Whitewater Valley.  It’s when heroin and Narcan are sold together by dealers as package deals.  Users gather and designate someone to administer the Narcan if an overdose occurs.  Narcan is readily available at most local drug stores.  Some local users are also getting tattoos noting the number of times they have been revived with Narcan.
