Dozens of North Country families were trained on how to administer overdose reversal drugs and were equipped with a Narcan kit Friday.

 

“The people who are involved in it are already talking about it,” he said. “The legislators, the police, the health care are talking about it, but we really got to get the community involved because it’s going to take all of us because when a man is suffering, his family suffers, and when his family suffers, the community suffers.

About 100 people attended Friday’s gathering.

“Everybody basically has somebody in their life, or they know somebody, who has an addiction problem, so we might as well get involved somehow,” said Samantha Whitson of Lancaster.

After a short film, community leaders, like Lancaster Assembly pastor Seth Frink, provided spiritual support.

“There are people out there who understand, people that can help them, people that they can lean on,” Frink said.
