Mental Health in Broomfield

Prescription opioid addiction is an important issue in Broomfield. The prescription opioid death rate in the city is 3.8 per 100,000 people.  While this figure is one of the lowest rates in the state, city and health officials are concerned it may become higher as seen in other parts of the country. 

To help prevent opioid-related deaths, officers from the Broomfield Police Department are equipped with the overdose medication Narcan. City and health officials plan to provide community training on how to use Narcan. The police department also offers a prescription drug drop-off program where residents may safely dispose of expired or unwanted medication.
