The city’s official website states that Dayton’s law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel have already responded to more than 1,800 calls related to suspected overdoses since the start of 2017.
(Which is a remarkable number in a city with around 140,000 residents.) Emergency personnel in Dayton have used more than 50 percent more Narcan to treat suspected overdoses since the start of the year than they used in all of 2016.
The Trump White House has said that the recently created Office of American Innovation, led by Kushner, will address the opioid epidemic, according to a report by the Washington Post.
The office is also tasked with handling a variety of unrelated issues, from veterans affairs to infrastructure projects.
