White Earth Reservation Police Going Door to Door with Narcan
In many of the cases, a toll free hotline has alerted his office, which in turn notifies the overdose response team
WHITE EARTH, Minn. — Narcan is saving lives on the White Earth Reservation.
The medication designed to rapidly reverse an opioid overdose has been distributed door-to-door in communities across the reservation.
