"If I had this training years ago I could have saved a life. Being in recovery puts [you] in proximity to many who have died as a result of opioid overdose.

 

Just over 13 years ago was my first experience as a 'kid' (27 years old) that I sponsored overdosed on methadone, obtained from the street. This was his fourth overdose, and they couldn't revive him that time. As I left the hospital I received a call from his sister saying they took him off the ventilator. Jeff was a dear friend. Many others who I've gotten to know (though not as deeply) have left us this way.

 

Naloxone saved my ex-wife on more than 3 occasions but without my intervention, since I was not trained and did not have access to the drug. Now I am empowered! Now I don't have to watch hopelessly and wait for EMS to arrive if it happens again. Thank you so much!"
