Opioid Epidemic Topic of Shapiro Meeting



by Amanda Jones

During a regional visit, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro met with law enforcement officials in Emporium to discuss efforts to combat the opioid epidemic.

Cameron County residents can count themselves lucky; the area has not suffered as many hardships from the opioid crisis as neighboring counties and other communities across the state. In 2016, the county recorded only one opioid-related overdose, which was reversed through the use of Naloxone. No opioid-related overdoses were recorded in 2017, and none, so far, in 2018.
