Morgan County Deputies recently saved a man’s life by administering Narcan after an overdose. It was their first use of the opioid-countering substance. Miller County has not had to use it yet, but they’re ready if they need to.
That’s Sheriff Louie Gregoire, who says they carry narcan to protect themselves as much as others.
Use of the pricey drug is somewhat controversial, with some figures proposing limiting how many times it can be used on an individual. Gregoire says they’re here to save and protect lives and they won’t let that happen.
