This past weekend, Camden County Sheriff Kevin Jones says a 24-year-old woman overdosed around 10 p.m. in the parking lot of the Dollar Store on US-158 in Camden County. Authorities say she was unconscious, wasn’t breathing correctly and had discolored lips. They said they gave her three doses of Naloxone and saved her. Then, around 11 a.m. the next day, there was an overdose in the parking lot of the former Camden Shell Station on US-158. Authorities say the man had no pulse and was unconscious. They said he was given two doses of Naloxone and survived but declined further medical treatment. First responders frequently go to scenes and provide Naloxone, a drug used to reverse the effects of an overdose.
