Health leaders in Warren County say they are seeing more drug overdoses.

They say they have had to use the life-saving, anti-opioid medication, Narcan 18 times so far this year. That is compared to the 14 times last year.

Both Warren and Washington counties are blaming isolation and stress from the pandemic as contributing factors.

Due to that, a new bi-county organization has been formed to help anyone in need.
