Latest on HB1672: Nasal Naloxone

HB 1672: Nasal Naloxone has made it out of subcommittee by a unanimous vote!! (Sub #1 of HWI). Next step: the bill must be approved by full committee on Thursday in time for cross-over to Senate approval.

Right now, we are working with the government to develop two pilot programs in the state to get this life-saving mechanism in the hands of those who need it most by the end of this year.

Here is a link to a training video on how to use nasal naloxone and how to recognize signs of an opiate overdose from a pilot program developed in North Carolina, The Lazarus Project.
