LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana distributes overdose-antidote kits in an effort to save lives.

More than 3,000 kits will be delivered to 20 counties across the state, including Clark County and Scott County. 

Kits include the drug Naloxone, which reverses the effects of heroin overdoses. 

Residents will be trained in the use of the kits by county health departments.

Officials have seen a recent spike in overdoses from heroin that may have been laced with a powerful painkiller.
