Opioid addiction is affecting an increasing number of Seminole County residents. In 2016, the opioid antidote Narcan was used 21 times to revive people who had overdosed. In 2017, the antidote had to be used more than 80 times. 

Heroin and fentanyl are two of the more commonly used drugs. In 2016, there were 20 drug-related deaths in the county. Eleven of these involved fentanyl or heroin.

To address the opioid epidemic, Seminole County recently formed a new task force that includes representatives from the health department, education sector, and law enforcement. The county also started a Narcotics Overdose Prevention and Education (NOPE) campaign that educates students about the dangers of drug use. The campaign also targets parents and helps them understand the signs of drug use and how to talk to their children about drugs.
