Reminder: Arizona has a Good Samaritan drug law that can help save lives. The statute protects victims of overdose as well as those who call for medical help while present during an overdose.
According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, there have been more than 9,800 suspected Opioid deaths statewide since June 2017.
During a drug-induced overdose, time is of the essence. Do not be afraid to call for help.
Below is a message from County Attorney Kent Volkmer.
