Harbor Village Florida comments how citizens of New Jersey are receiving training on how to administer opiate-overdose reversal drug Narcan.

Ocean County, NJ (PRWEB) July 11, 2014

As reported by the Star Ledger in the article Officials To Give Out 100 Free Narcan Kits in Ocean County (7/3), 100 residents of Ocean County in New Jersey recently received free training on how to administer the drug Narcan, an opiate-overdose reversal drug as well as a free kit during this previous Fourth of July weekend. The Ocean County Opiate Task Force hosted a seminar called Family Night in which psychiatrists, law enforcement officers, and the prosecutor's office got together to give away 100 free kits to those who were willing to come learn how to use the drug. Anybody after the 100 cut-off count was able to purchase a kit for $25. Ocean County police officers were recently the first police officers to receive training on how to administer Narcan and have since saved many lives. The purpose of the event was to raise public awareness that anyone, not just first responders, could learn and administer Narcan. Subsequently, New Jersey law protects anyone who knows how to use the drug from prosecution.

With the recent heroin and opiate epidemic making its way through the East Coast, more and more lives have been saved thanks to Narcan, a drug that comes in a nasal spray format. It has no side effects and is simple to administer. Opiate drugs are some of the most powerful drugs out there. Many people unknowingly fall into the clutches of an opiate addiction when they do not take prescription pain killers as prescribed. Often times, that leads to heroin use because it is much cheaper and easier to obtain.
