Assistant attorneys general trained on opioid overdose reversal drug

As the opioid overdose rate continues to climb in Michigan, the Department of Attorney General last Thursday conducted a training session for assistant attorneys general and department investigators on the proper administration of the opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone.

"Fighting the opioid abuse epidemic is more than filing charges against dealers and manufacturers, it's getting help for those struggling with addiction," said Schuette. "I am proud of the members of my team that took part in today's training. We have a responsibility to help those in need, and knowing how to save the life of someone overdosing from an opioid-based drug is part of that responsibility."

The training was held in the Department's Detroit office and was attended by 27 assistant attorneys general and investigators and done in conjunction with the Detroit-Wayne County Mental Health Authority.
