New response team for overdoses


By Wayne Gates – 

Beginning in early September, Brown County will have a new weapon in the battle against opioid addiction.
A quick response team will be going on many emergency medical runs for overdoses.
“It’s a group of people who go out after a person overdoses and is revived by Narcan. The idea behind it is to make one on one contact with the individual or the family so that they know that there are resources available to get them into treatment,” said Executive Director Deanna Vietze of the Brown County Board of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
Vietze said that a Brown County Drug Task Force member, a health department nurse and a treatment professional from Talbert House will be part of the team.

  1. I think this is a great idea BUT will not help in the efforts. This proactive measure WILL NOT influence “high” PEOPLE to call and get help even life saving help for an odded relative or friend. People inevitably know that their actions leading up to an overdose will soon be riddled with consequences. THAT’S why DRUG ADDICTS DON’T CALL FOR HELP. Now if this was an “Anonymous ” resource working to save drug addicts lives amenity would be crucial in the efforts. IF drug addicts werent afraid of the consequences when some one with them odeed then many people would still be alive because THEY’D CALL FOR HELP. So a RESOURCE TEAM OR NO RESOURCE TEAM the end is the same in the ones there with the odeed person… consequences for the addicts involved..ULtimately the DRUG ADDICT makes the choice hate the sin love the sinner. There’s no winners.
