LA PINE, OR -- Deschutes County Sheriff's Deputies recently saved a La Pine woman reportedly suffering from a drug overdose twice, within 24 hours.
The first call came in Thursday, just after 5 p.m. Deputies arrived within six minutes of the call, administered a single dose of Naloxone, also called "Narcan," and the woman regained consciousness. They were dispatched to the same location at 11:34 Friday morning and discovered the woman was again suffering from an overdose. They administered Narcan and she again responded immediately.
In 2017, Deschutes County Deputies used Narcan nine times to save the lives of people suffering from drug overdoses. They've administered it five times, so far this year.
