A man who was having an overdose at the Martinez Detention Facility was revived by Contra Costa County sheriff's deputies last week.
The sheriff's office said in a news release that deputies were notified at about 7:10 a.m. July 19 that the 40-year-old man was unconscious in the facility's sally port, which is an extended, secure entryway.
The man had been arrested by the San Pablo Police Department before being taken to the county jail. Deputies administered two doses of Narcan, which is used to prevent opioid-related overdoses.
Contra Costa Health Services medical staff responded and provided additional doses of Narcan. The man was taken to recover at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center in Martinez. He was later discharged, according to the sheriff's office.
