On August 31st, International Overdose Awareness Day, Henderson County and The Free Clinics launched the brand new Post-Overdose Response Team (PORT).
This team, who themselves have lived experience with addiction, will visit our community members who have recently experienced an overdose or been resuscitated by Naloxone, as well as individuals recently released from detention, to offer support and connect them with resources that can help.
To learn more about this important new program and the impact it will have on our neighbors living with substance use disorder:
