Last weekend in Harris County, they were 11 opioid-related overdoses. Each month, there’s an average of 100 opioid-related overdoses and in 2018 there were 275 deaths. That number is expected to rise in 2019 and that’s why a group called HEROES, Houston Emergency Opioid Engagement System, said they’re working to intervene in the grips of addiction.
