Wicomico CO. Trains Residents To Use Opioid Overdose Drug
WICOMICO CO., Md. - Wednesday, Wicomico County became one of the first places on the shore to train residents on how to use opioid overdose drug naloxone.
This comes a year after Maryland created a statewide program, allowing residents to be prescribed and trained in administering the drug.
Wicomico County is targeting people who might encounter opioid users in a professional capacity: police, addictions workers, those running homeless shelters, before opening the training up to the general public.
Both the training and prescriptions are being funded by grant money through the end of June. After, the county hopes to find other funding in order to keep the program free.
