1,000th Documented nasal Narcan Reversal in MA

Today the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will recognize the tremendous effort put forth by the eight nasal Narcan pilot sites, the 15 opioid overdose prevention coalitions, the family support groups, treatment centers, and countless numbers of individuals, whether they are non users, in recovery, or in active addiction who have used nasal Narcan in the event of an opioid overdose and saved a life.  The event is at the Massachusetts State House from 2-3pm today.  We know the real number of reversals is so much higher, so we will continue to encourage people to report their use of nasal Narcan.  Overdose prevention and nasal Narcan works and it SAVES LIVES!

August 31st
