The opioid crisis in Alaska has been getting worse since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Overdoses are becoming more frequent, and so have deaths. Shanna Rockenbach and Amy Butts – wellness program supervisor for the Kodiak Area Native Association and Kodiak’s public health nurse, respectively – have been distributing Narcan and leading community outreach efforts to help combat the epidemic in Kodiak.

Rockenbach and Butts joined KMXT’s Dylan Simard to discuss the opioid crisis’ impact in Kodiak, as well as resources that locals can use to get access to Narcan themselves.
