Smith Drug company donates $6,000 of naloxone (opiate antidote)

"Spartanburg County is getting a huge donation of Narcan spray, to help cut down the number of Opioid overdoses thanks to Smith Drug Distribution."

Smith Drug Company donated 60 Opiate Overdose Kits, worth over $6,000 to Spartanburg County. The kits will be distributed to both the Spartanburg County Sheriffs office and the Spartanburg Police Department.  Since many times the officers and deputies are on scene before EMS arrives, they will be able to begin treatment earlier and increase the chances that a life may be saved.
