Recovering Hope

Recovering Hope Treatment Center President Sadie Broekemeier freely provides clients and visitors with a naloxone kit designed to save lives in the event of an opioid overdose. Each kit contains medical gloves, three sterile syringes/needles, three doses of Nolaxone, alcohol wipes and instructions. 

 

The number of opioid-involved overdose deaths have increased in Minnesota since 2000: from 54 in 2000 to 678 in 2020. Much of this increase is attributed to the increase of a deadly synthetic opioid, fentanyl, laced into other drugs.
