Bergen County Police Trained in the Administration of Overdose Rescue Drug

 
  

August 13, 2014 —Marc Dreier, M.D., Medical Director of The Valley Hospital’s Mobile Intensive Care Unit, in partnership with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, recently trained police officers from more than 30 Bergen County towns in the use of Narcan nasal spray, which temporarily counters the effect of heroin and other opioids, allowing time for the victim to be brought to a hospital for medical care. 

The training paves the way for police across the county to begin carrying Narcan, which can be the difference between life or death for someone suffering from a heroin overdose.

Shown here: Marc Dreier, Medical Director of The Valley Hospital’s Mobile Intensive Care Unit, demonstrates the use of Narcan nasal spray to Lodi Police Sgt. Christopher Perrilli, while Lt. Robert McManus and Chief of Detectives Carmen Martino, of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, look on.
