In the ongoing effort to raise awareness about Ocean County's heroin epidemic, Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato is holding another forum, "Can We Talk? Are You Listening?" on Tuesday, October 22, at Pinelands Regional High School.
Free Narcan and training is being offered to Ocean and Monmouth County residents as part of a community-focused overdose prevention project. The Narcan is being distributed through Neptune-based JSAS Healthcare, Incorporated.
Narcan has been instrumental in reversing more than 70 heroin overdoses in Ocean County since law enforcement started administering the life-saving nasal spray in April. However, with repeat saves now occurring, its limitations in the war on drugs is becoming apparent.
A sobering reality: Narcan doesn't always reverse heroin overdoses. That warning from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office following the recent death of a Wall Township man who police were unable to revive with the opiate antidote.
The reality of the Jersey Shore's heroin epidemic hit home following the death Wednesday of a 50-year-old Wall Township man, who police were unable to revive with the Narcan (Naloxone) antidote, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office.
