Law enforcement officials have taken the unusual step of issuing a public safety alerts due to a spike in drug overdoses. Alexia Reed Holtum, Executive Director of the non-profit Steve Rummler HOPE Network says there’s been a recent paradigm shift…

“Law enforcement is aware and wanting to be part of the solution and they no longer believe that the solution is going to be incarceration, but helping people find pathways and avenues to treatment for the disease of addiction.”

Holtum is encouraging individuals with loved ones who are addicted to get trained on how to administer and carry naloxone to reverse an opioid overdose.
