There's a stigma around addiction and overdose that we, as a community, have to overcome if we want to see growth and recovery.
Stigma: Naloxone (Narcan) is a medication used for treating heroin addicts.
Truth: Naloxone IS often used in heroin overdose situations, and if you love an addict you should carry Naloxone.
But, Naloxone has more than one purpose. Overdose is more than just heroin overdose. If you or a loved one has prescription pain pills, be SAFE. Safe use, safe storage, and safe disposal. Part of being safe is having a prescription of Naloxone available in case of accidental ingestion of opioid pain relievers.
