The Porter County Vivitrol program for those who have been incarcerated for drug possession. VIVITROL is a treatment program that blocks the effects of opioids. VIVITROL is the first and only non-addictive, once-monthly medication that, when combined with counseling, is proven to help prevent relapse to opioid dependence.
We also discussed how a person qualifies for the Vivitrol treatment program.
The Sheriff also discussed the production of The Porter County Heroin Epidemic Video that is an educational video directed at young adults.
The Sheriff also discussed the use of NARCAN™ (NALOXONE) on overdose victims.
We would like to that Sheriff Reynolds and Jay Birky for sharing their valuable time to share information on these important topics with us. We would also like to commend Sheriff David Reynolds and the Porter County Sheriff’s Department on their continued efforts to help fight the growing drug epidemic in Porter County.
