SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The CDC has some new funding opportunities that build onto its existing Overdose Data to Action Program, which aims to reduce drug overdoses, overdose deaths and related harms.
States, cities and counties can apply for funding that will help advance the critical work that health departments and communities do to prevent overdoses every day.
Areas of focus for the program are overdose prevention, surveillance, evaluation and health equity.
Some people may think only first responders need to know what to do in an overdose situation, but it’s important that everyone has an idea of how to respond in case they find themselves in a situation where someone needs help.
NaxosNeighbors is an organization local to South Bend that offers resources in the fight against overdoses, including NARCAN training.
You can find more information about the training and resources on their website.
