Orange County Mothers Are Becoming Certified to Administer Naloxone After Their Children's' Deaths
(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 27, 2015 ) Orlando, FL -- Orange County has become a hot bed for heroin use and subsequent overdoses. According to NBC Los Angeles a band of mothers who have lost their children to preventable heroin overdoses are coming together to become certified in the administration of naloxone, an overdose reversal medication which saves victims of overdose from dying of suffocation and sustaining permanent brain damage. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the number of heroin related deaths have increased fourfold in "nearly Orlando Drug Rehab Addiction Treatment in Orlando a decade" according to NBC Los Angeles. Orlando Drug Rehab supports naloxone and narcan training for the populace and public officials. The Drug treatment facility in Orlando asserts allowing those who are at high risk of needing to administer the drug should become certified before the worst happens. With heroin overdose rates rising, getting certified could mean the difference between life and death in many cases.
Naloxone works to uninhibit the central nervous system and allows victims of overdose to breath, and avoid death by suffocation and permanent brain damage. The medication is typically administered as a nasal spray, and also comes in an injectable form. Those treated with naloxone (and the similar narcan) are floored into an immediate state of withdrawal.
An associate from Orlando Drug Rehab comments, "It's critical those at high risk for witnessing an overdose of a loved one become certified in the use of an overdose reversal medication. Sometimes first responders don't get there in time to prevent death. Administering naloxone is simple once trained, as it is typically taken as a nasal spray. There are some who believe the medication is a scapegoat for continuing addiction- but on the contrary, if victims of overdose die on the spot, they will never be able to get the help they need to overcome addiction. Opiate overdose reversal medications allow them to bounce back in treatment. When nationally proliferated the opiate overdose rates should drop considerably with community involvement and action."
