Naloxone is used to reverse the effects of heroin and other opioid overdoses. The kits received from the grant were given free of charge directly to patients dealing with opioid addiction and their family members in hopes of saving lives.

Several organizations benefit from MCMS’s community services. MCMS, along with the Cleveland Municipal Courts, started the first human trafficking docket in Northeast Ohio under the leadership of Judge Marilyn Cassidy.
