Drug Overdose Support, Resources Available to Valley County Residents

BOISE, April 22, 2024 – In response to the recent loss of four lives due to drug overdoses in Valley County, Central District Health and Valley County Opioid Response Project (VCORP) encourage community members to learn about local resources to raise awareness. Anyone can use these resources to help combat substance misuse and learn how to provide support to those affected by it.

Valley County Coroner Scott G. Carver confirmed four drug overdose deaths occurred from January to March 2024. He said two of the cases had fentanyl use contributing to the deaths and it is strongly suspected that the other two deaths are also related to fentanyl use.

“The rise in fatal overdoses underscores the pressing need for accessible resources and interventions to address substance use disorder and prevent further tragedies. Local agencies and community organizations are focused on increasing awareness, expanding support and access to treatment options, and distributing Narcan,” Carver said.

“Our community needs everyone to do their part to help combat the dangers of substance use. By learning about resources available, spreading the word, and learning about life-saving measures, including the use of naloxone, we can all work to prevent further tragedies,” said Traci Jamieson, Ignite Idaho executive director.
