Letter: Naloxone access point informational meetings planned

Published 8:30 pm Friday, September 16, 2022

Given the recent increases in opioid overdoses in our community, a grassroots effort is being mobilized to build bridges of communication, information, and intervention. Grace Christian Church has been made available as a Naloxone Access Point (NAP).

Two informational meetings, led by local leaders and chemical dependency professionals, will be offered on Wednesday at noon and 6:30 p.m. Food and drinks will be provided at each meeting. The meetings will be held at Grace Christian Church, 501 W. College St., Albert Lea. Please enter the white side door on Euclid.
