(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Another overdose has been reported to our news complex today, this time the south end has been rocked, foiled and smoked out.
Reporrts hit us about city police, firefighters and paramedics swarming the 200 block of Finlayson this evening in response to an apparent opiate overdose.
The victim was revived with Narcan blasts and was quickly transported to the Hilton Hospital (Emergency Department) where they will recover from their situation under the watchful eye of our hardworking Emergency Department staff.
Finlayson is known for housing numerous “trap houses”. A “trap house” is a residence in which drugs are being sold out of.
Narcan, also known as Naloxone, is a drug that can temporarily reverse an opiate overdose long enough for medical professionals to arrive. It is free and available at almost any pharmacy.
Thinking about sobering up? Sick of being narcanned? Reach out to the great people at the Thunder Bay Counselling Centre and ask them how to begin the journey of recovery at 807-684-1880.
