The law firm of Ventura Law has been a major force in Connecticut in its fight against opioids, representing numerous cities against the manufacturers of opioids, including Danbury and Norwalk.

DANBURY, Conn., July 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- To further its support of cities which have suffered tremendously

from the destructive effects of the opioid epidemic, the Firm has agreed to donate $20,000 to the Western Connecticut Health Network for the specific purpose of purchasing Naloxone (Narcan), and supporting the personnel who assist those who have overdosed from opioids in the cities of Danbury and Norwalk. Narcan is a life-saving drug which, when administered during an opioid overdose, can combat the effects of opioids on the brain and bring a person back to life.

The funds donated by Ventura Law to the Western Connecticut Health Network will provide urgently-needed Narcan to the most vulnerable members of our communities. Ventura Law CEO, Attorney Agostinho ("Augie") Ribeiro commented, "Ventura Law is dedicated to helping fight this national tragedy, and aiding the medical facilities in the communities where we live and work. We truly value and commend the work that the Western Connecticut Health Network is doing to help combat this epidemic."

Ventura Law helps build healthy and vital communities by supporting organizations and initiatives which make a positive difference through Fairfield County and the State of Connecticut.

A check presentation ceremony will be taking place at Ventura Law's Danbury office at, 235 Main Street Danbury, CT 06810 on July 17th at 9 AM.
