Statistics reveal record pace for Narcan use, opioid ambulance runs in Boston

The city’s first responders logged thousands of ambulance runs and administered lifesaving Narcan at a record pace last year as Boston emerged as a mecca for out-of-town opioid addicts, shocking new statistics show.

Police and medical experts warn that 2018 could be just as bad with no signs the drug epidemic is letting up.

“We’re not out of the woods. It’s a constant challenge with more users from outside the city than inside the city,” Boston police spokesman Sgt. John Boyle told the Herald.
