MEDINA — The Geneses-Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse will lead a meeting about the opioid crisis in Orleans County on Nov. 30.

The 2-hour meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at the old Medina High School, 324 Catherine St.

GCASA professionals will discuss the crisis and how it is affecting the community. Two young adults have died from overdoses this month.

GCASA will also detail resources available in the community, and give advice to residents on how they can help.

There will also be Narcan kits available. Narcan is a prescription medicine that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose.
