“I became a cop to help people and I’m glad that we could be there to help this man." - Police Officer Peroni.
Two police officers on the Upper East Side of Manhattan saved a man from a potentially fatal drug overdose last week. Police Officer Peroni and his partner Police Officer Garcia responded to a call of an unconscious man. When they arrived at East 91 Street and Second Avenue they observed a 22-year-old man slumped over a park bench and unresponsive.
Putting their training and experience to work the two officers determined that the man had overdosed on drugs. The duo quickly administered their #NYPD issued #Naloxone spray to the unconscious man. He regained consciousness and was removed to Metropolitan Hospital for treatment. #NYC

New embroidery piece I just stitched up! This is naloxone/narcan, the drug that is used to stop an opioid overdose. Text on small pharmaceutical vials is a real pain to stitch well. This is version 2.0 because 1.0 was incomprehensible. .

Tens of thousands in the #US are dying from opioid-related drug overdoses.
But a "miracle" drug exists to prevent them. Naloxone should be as easy to get as Tylenol. It's time the US helped save lives and ensured it is.

What do you do when you see someone showing signs of relapse?

Legislation has been signed into law that will shield pharmacists from criminal and civil liability when they dispense Naloxone, an opioid-reversing medication, and a death or injury results. (The new law will not apply in cases where the pharmacist caused the injuries or death willfully, wantonly, or by gross negligence.) In photo: Kenneth McLaughlin, Chief of the Ocean View Police Department, spoke at yesterday's bill signing ceremony. OVPD was the first police department in the state to have deployed Naloxone with its officers after a state law was enacted giving Delaware law enforcement agencies the option. At the press event, he said the law “will save lives” and added that “Naloxone is to an opioid overdose victim what a defibrillator is for a heart attack victim.” #netde #Delaware #naloxone #opioidepidemic

Saw this today at #walgreens. If you have insurance they'll run it, other wise you have to pay the $100 something fee. I think its great to know how to use this, and I have no issues having my insurance run for it. If you have insurance, and need #narcan , go to Walgreens. If you don't, I'll get it to carry for you.... [Or I'll help you get some, if I have to sell clippies... ] I insist you let me save your life if I can. [I'd much prefer you save your own tho!!! ]

Chuck Biksey, paramedic with Rostraver West Newton EMS, responds to a call during a 24 hour shift. Biksey said it's important for him to treat every patient the same whether they're an overdose patient or not because it's his job and most importantly because he has family that is dealing with substance abuse.

Paramedics have carried Naloxone Hydrochloride, commonly known as Narcan a medication used to reverse the effects of opioids, for decades; however, with the rise in overdoses they have had to increase their supply. According to paramedics, for the most part 2 or 4mg of Narcan were required to resuscitate an overdose patient, now with synthetic opioids such as fentanyl it can require anywhere from 8-12 mg. Although Narcan has been called a life saving drug others feel it has enabled people to continue to do drugs rather than seek treatment. "Instead of just being able to treat someone in the short term, we've actually became enablers, somehow in the midst of this," said Fayette EMS Chief Rick Adobato.
