Surgeon General Recommends More People Carry Overdose-Reversing Drug

"It is time to make sure more people have access to this lifesaving medication, because 77 percent of opioid overdose deaths occur outside of a medical setting and more than half occur at home".

The substance abuse disorder and mental illness treatment center had given out about 50 kits of naloxone through Friday afternoon, said the organization's CEO, Adam Cohen.

The Chief of Government Affairs and Interim Executive Director for the National Association of County & City Health Officials, Laura Hanen, said, "Dr Adams is assisting to set free those who are striving with opioid obsession by acknowledging the significance of keeping citizens alive".

Russian Federation vows tough response to new USA sanctions
Mr Deripaska's conglomerate, Basic Element , said it regretted the sanctions and was analysing them with its lawyers. Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin speaks in the White House briefing room in Washington on April 26, 2017.

The United States Surgeon General urged the public to carry naloxone and learn how to use it.

As the opioid crisis continues, Americans are seeing the price of overdose-reversal drugs climb higher and higher.

Naloxone can reverse the effects of a potentially deadly opioid overdose.

Robbers arrested while picking motorbike used in foiled robbery
Williams told officers that he was present when the victim was robbed, but did not participate in the robbery, the report says. The suspects sensing danger took to their heels and abandoned the motorbike parked in front of the house.

The drug comes as an injection or nasal spray. Naloxone is not addictive and is safe to administer even when it turns out the patient was not overdosing, according to health experts. "It may very well save their life in case they do slip once, because that's all it takes".

Most states also have laws created to protect health care professionals for prescribing and dispensing naloxone from civil and criminal liabilities, as well as Good Samaritan laws to protect people who administer naloxone or call for help during an opioid overdose emergency.

The Surgeon general also said today that in order for this to work and prevent overdose, the increased availability of nalxone must occur with expanded access to treatment for those with an opioid disorder. "That would be like me saying I'm not going to do CPR on someone having a heart attack because if we save them, they're just going to go out there and eat fast food and be back here all over again". In 2016, the city had a budget that allowed them to buy 5,000 naloxone kits for the year.
