SHIPMAN: WHO WILL PAY FOR NARCAN WHEN GRANTS RUN OUT?

(Richmond, IN)--Wayne County first responders could not put a specific number on the amount of Narcan doses that have been administered this year to revive heroin addicts who have overdosed, but did indicate that it’s easily into the hundreds.  Each dose costs between $30 and $40, and multiple doses are often required for the same person.  Now, Wayne County Prosecutor Mike Shipman has commented on his office’s Facebook page.  Shipman said that the users are not paying the costs and wondered who will pay to revive users who refuse to get clean once grant funding runs out.
