Monroe County opioid overdoses down from last year

Monroe County released the numbers for opioid-related overdoses for the month of July on Friday.

Some good news was that both overdoses and fatalities were at a year low. There were 35 overdoses in the county, and five were fatal.           

Both numbers are half of what Monroe County had in July 2021.           

If you know anyone dealing with substance abuse issues, the Monroe County Heroin Task Force urges them to please call 911.
