Available free of cost for anyone at risk of an opioid overdose — or anyone who knows someone who is?

I shake my head to think that the opioid crises could be worse than what I lived through in the past. But it seems to be worse now and I saw terrible things (1960’s and 1970’s) once upon a time in America….very very terrible things…
