    What’s in 'dope' now? The latest on fentanyl overdoses in New London County

    During one weekend in mid-February 2022, six people died from fatal overdoses in New London County and 26 others suffered from non-fatal overdoses. Jennifer Muggeo, deputy director of the Ledge Light Health District, stopped in to bring us up to date on the evidence-based treatments for those suffering from opioid use disorder and of the available harm reduction tools, including naloxone kits, fentanyl test strips, and syringe exchanges. Muggeo told us about a new animal tranquilizer turning up in overdose cases involving the synthetic opioid fentanyl.
