Government Efforts to Address Drug Problems in Albany, GA and Dougherty County
The Dougherty County Health Department advises Albany and county residents to learn the signs of an opioid overdose. Residents who spot the signs and symptoms of an overdose, like pinpoint pupils, respiratory depression, blue lips, or choking sounds, are urged to administer naloxone if it’s available. Naloxone works to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. Albany and Dougherty County residents ages 18 and older can obtain naloxone at various pharmacies throughout the county and state of Georgia, thanks to a standing order for the drug from the Commissioner.
Community Efforts to Address Drug Problems in Albany, GA
In 2018, Jessie Blanchard of Albany began small, trying to keep enough naloxone on hand to save her daughter from a fatal overdose. She urged her coworkers to use their prescription benefits for two naloxone doses every six months.
