WEST MILFORD — West Milford Police revived a 31-year-old woman from the Hewitt section of town Saturday after administering Naloxone, a nasal spray that counteracts an opioid overdose.
After finding the woman unresponsive and displaying blue lips, West Milford police officers administered one dose of the opioid-blocking Naloxone to the woman at 2:12 p.m. on Jan. 21, according to a press release from the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office. The woman became responsive but remained sedated and was transferred to local emergency medical services.
Officers also retrieved several empty bags, believed to be heroin, stamped “Jackpot” from the scene.
According to the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office, this is the seventh Naloxone deployment in Passaic County in 2017. Since 2014, members of law enforcement in Passaic County have received training in the administration of Naloxone to respond to suspected opiate overdoses.
