Monday around 7 p.m. officers were called to a home on Santic Road for a reported heroin overdose. When they arrived they found a male lying in the kitchen floor unresponsive. His breathing was labored and his hands had turned blue, police said.

The male was revived when an officer gave him two doses of a nasal form of naloxone. He was taken to the hospital for further treatment.
