The Permian Basin Regional Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse helped OPD get the nasal spray to help with the opioid crisis here in the Basin.

According to NewsWest 9, the Permian Basin Regional Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse donated 150 Narcan nasal spray cans to the Odessa Police.

"Midland and Odessa ranks 15 in the U.S. of opioid overdoses," said Jackie Duarte, prevention technician for the Permain Basin Regional Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse.

Now police officers will have the nasal spray handy for any calls they get on an opioid overdose which happens every day in Odessa.
