Issue: Increase in Suspected Opioid Overdoses
Since January 2019 there has been a higher volume of suspected opioid overdoses in Brantford and Brant County. This past weekend we reached a critical level for overdoses and deaths from suspected opioids. The number of overdoses are more than double of those during the same period for 2018, and are comparable to 2017.
