By the time Jeanne Nearhoof, of Lycoming County, and her mother went to a naloxone distribution site Thursday, there wasn’t any left.
That site in Williamsport had run out of the drug used to reverse opioid overdoses. But, Nearhoof did leave with information about how to get it.
“It affects everyone," she said of opioid addiction. "It’s not just poor people or bad people. It’s everybody and anybody.”
That includes her family.
“It’s hell. It truly is hell," Nearhoof said. "It is definitely the devil’s drug.”
