Martinsville’s Overdose Ranking Already Turned Around

Martinsville may have been ranked first in the state for opioid and heroin overdoses in January, but by the time the announcement was made in a press conference by Martinsville Police Chief Sean Dunn, the area had dropped to eleventh. Of course, those numbers had not been released yet.

According to a report from WSLS-TV in Roanoke, Chief Dunn says the religious leaders of the community and the opioid task force formed in December accounts for the drop along with arrests of the drug dealers including a couple of large suppliers of prescription pills.
