BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Jail staff used Narcan to help an inmate suffering from an apparent drug overdose, this week. It's the sixth time this year that the Sheriff's Office has used Narcan during a known or suspected overdose.  

 

In this most recent case, a 21-year-old man was in a holding cell following the booking process, Sunday, when Deputies noticed his condition was deteriorating. A Corrections Nurse assessed the inmate and found he had very low blood pressure and showed signs of opiate use. Staff administered two doses of Narcan; the man immediately responded after the second dose. He was admitted to the hospital and has since been released back to the jail.
