Opioid overdose is now the leading cause of injury death in the state of Massachusetts. In an effort to save lives, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health has created a program to promote the education of misusers of opioids and their families about the use of naloxone (also known as Narcan). During an opioid overdose, breathing can slow to the point of death. After being sprayed into the nose, Naloxone blocks the opioid and restores normal breathing. It is safe, easy to administer, and has no potential for abuse.
