The city of Lakewood is trying a new approach to fight the opioid epidemic.

Project SOAR (Supporting Opiate Addiction Recovery) will use peers with experience in addiction recovery to contact local residents who’ve overdosed, and suggest options for recovery.

Lakewood mayor Mike Summers says the program will give drug users a second chance.
