is for anyone who can not access naloxone through pharmacies, syringe exchange programs, or by other means.
This program is saving lives. EMS is not always called. For fear and being charged with a crime if you overdose is recorded. Or EMS is not fast enough with their naloxone. Anybody it has to deal with anyone else with this horrible disease of addiction should have access do this life-saving medication. Everybody needs to quit turning a blind eye to opioid addiction. Because I'll be addicts I know are white people friend senior down to to young adults. He's our middle class highly educated white people fit have jobs pay their bills don't commit crimes. They just have the disease of addiction.
I’ve personally used Narcan, on 12 different occasions for overdoses. Some were friends, some were not. Being a nurse, and seeing everything I’ve experienced, I wouldn’t feel right not carrying it. No matter who it is, that person has someone who loves them, and doesn’t want to lose them. Some people take that one chance as their wake up call, and they run with it!!!
Due to this program I have saved my boyfriend's life numerous times and am now happy to report that he is in a methadone program and doing well. Working a good job paying his bills has his own apt./responsibilities. A lot of ppl are quick to give up on addicts and say to just let us die.. Well it's cuz of kind hearted ppl like you all that run these programs that a lot of us get 2nd an 3rd chances but we do recover.. Drug use/overdose is still a big problem in my city and I will always continue to do my part to help an addict in need (without enabling). I try to keep narcan on me at all times and educate/raise awareness about harm reduction and MAT.
In my community, overdoses are rampant and NOT MENTIONED in any of our local media... Radio, cable, news papers. Our tourist town is plagued by overdoses ans so many deaths occur and NO ONE is aware. Id like to save as many people as I can (I try to keep Naloxone on me at ALL TIMES! In my car, my home, my purse etc..) We have NO programs near me that I am aware of that can supply people with Naloxone. This program is important to me because I have saved a life. I thank God that your program allowed me to do so.
