Surgeon General's Idea For Opioid Crisis: Get Everyone To Carry Narcan

After the second incident, the three owners of Alfalfa's - Mark Homlish, Tripp Wall and Mike Corenblat - made a decision to keep the often lifesaving drug in stores and provide training to senior employees.
The Surgeon General's office also released a health advisory Thursday to urge citizens to carry Narcan if they are at risk.
Naloxone is available over the counter in most states, including Colorado.
"You don't have to be a policeman or a firefighter or a paramedic to save a life", saidAdams, who pointed out that more than half of opioidoverdose deaths in the USA occur at home.
The surgeon general's advisory said most states allow family, friends or caregivers to obtain the drug from a pharmacy.
Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said more Americans should start carrying the overdose antidote naloxone to help combat the opioid crisis and save lives.
More than 42,000 Americans died from opioid overdoses in 2016.
"It's an opiate antagonst, so what it does is reverses the effects of the opiate", Daniel said.
The rising price of naloxone has become a major problem as tens of thousands of people die from opioid overdoses each year.
She added that "more funding is going to be needed". We have trainings through the Parent Addiction Network where family members, anybody can come to a quarterly training that we offer with AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin to get naloxone and be trained on how to use it. Since 2013, there have been 123 overdose reversals reported on the app.
"I didn't care", she said.
The Longmont Police Department, which has all officers carry naloxone, also faces an unsure future with its supply. "Many of those prescriptions are at doses where patients are at risk". "We take it seriously", Gonzalez said. Generic naloxone can cost between $20 and $40 per dose, while Narcan can cost around $130 to $140 for a kit that includes two doses. Nebraska pharmacies can dispense naloxonewithout a prescription, said Joni Cover, CEO of the Nebraska Pharmacists Association.
In most states, people can walk into a pharmacy and request naloxone even if you don't already have a prescription, and most states 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.
"Knowing how to use naloxone and keeping it within reach can save a life", said Dr. Jerome Adams.
Noonan hopes those who object to using naloxone can think about it as "an opportunity for somebody to live another day to choose recovery".
"If you have any fear that you may need one for yourself or a loved one", said Papademetriou.
