[ARCHIVED] DBFD starts program to fight opioid addiction

WEB_DART Program for Fire

The Daytona Beach Fire Department (DBFD) launched a new program aimed at helping individuals suffering from substance abuse and addiction. The DART (Drug Abuse Response Team) is a collaborative effort between the DBFD Community Paramedicine Program, the Daytona Beach Police Department and Stewart-Marchman Alliance. The goal is to identify drug users and assist in bringing them to recovery programs directly from the field.

The team personally visits people who have recently overdosed and provides them with an informational packet that includes resources on substance abuse, contact information for local assistance programs and Narcan Nasal Spray that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose in an emergency situation. DART encourages those suffering to take advantage of a program in order to overcome drug addiction.

If you know someone who may benefit from DART or would like more information, please call DBFD at (386) 671-4010.
