O-D deaths

Saint John had the most drug overdose deaths last year in the province…even though the seven deaths were the lowest number in three years.

There were six deaths in Moncton and three in Fredericton with Miramichi and Cambellton each recording two.

Renée Fournier, manager of Ridgewood Addiction Services, told the Telegraph-Journal the downward trend in O-Ds may mean some stability recently and she thinks methadone clinics are contributing to that.
