Clark County health officials say the number of drug-overdose cases continues to skyrocket. If trends continue, the county could soon surpass the number of drug deaths seen in the county all of last year.
Over the course of just two days, doctors at Springfield Regional Medical Center treated more than four dozen overdose victims, more than double the typical average, health officials say.
But it’s a fraction of Clark County’s total overdoses so far this year. Dozens more have died or were revived by first responders.
