Mental Health in Morgantown

Opioid abuse is a major concern in Morgantown and Monongalia County. Between August 2016 and October 2017, the Morgantown Police Department responded to 56 overdoses, seven of which were fatal. To help tackle this issue, a drop box was installed at the local police station. Residents can anonymously dispose of any drugs into the box without being interrogated. 

Monongalia County has the third highest overdose death rate in West Virginia. To curtail the rising number of fatalities, the county’s Health Department now offers training to residents on how to use the overdose reversal drug Narcan. Individuals who complete the 30-minute training receive a kit containing the medication. They can then administer Narcan if the need arises.
