Drug Overdose Investigations
In 2018, the CDC reported 4,698 drug overdose deaths in the state of Florida. On September 6, 2020, the City of Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department reported that in 2016, they responded to 180 opioid-related calls. In 2020, that number rose to 243. “For us in the field, sadly, it’s an everyday call,” said Capt. Eric Prosswimmer, who works behind the scenes for JFRD. “It doesn’t matter your background, your upbringing, wherever you live. It doesn’t matter. It hits everybody.” (News4Jax, 09/06/2020)
All too often, families discover one of their loved ones are experimenting with drugs for recreational purposes. This activity often develops into an addiction, which sometimes results in a very untimely and tragic loss of life. It is entirely unfortunate, but due to the prevailing opioid epidemic, thousands of families will continue to lose loved ones to drug overdoses every year.
