When someone has overdosed on an opiate and stops breathing, there are only a few crucial minutes before the loss of oxygen causes irreversible brain damage, which often results in death. Naloxone is a drug that acts immediately to restore breathing and give you time to get your loved one to a hospital.
If you need Naloxone, contact Brightside Clinic today. We’ll provide this life-saving medication to you for free.
People suffering from addiction live high-risk lifestyles, so we want you to be prepared for life-threatening situations if or when they happen. If you know a friend or family member who is addicted to opiates, you should have some Naloxone on hand.
There isn’t a lot of time to save someone’s life once they have overdosed on heroin or another opiate, so Naloxone could be the difference between their living or dying. Contact us today to get started.
Fortunately, you don’t have to be a medical professional or an emergency responder to administer Naloxone to someone in need. It is prescribed as either an injection or a spray, so it will enter the body and get to work immediately.
