A drug addict has to truly want to quit using drugs. No amount of counseling is going to help if they are not ready to quit. Sending these patients that have overdosed home with Narcan is a good idea. These patients could die before help gets to them. This medication could save on emergency room visits. Having this medication at home doesn’t encourage drug addicts to do drugs. They are going to do drugs whether they have Narcan or not if they aren’t ready to quit. No one wakes up one morning and decides to become a drug addict. For those of us that have no desire to try drugs have no idea why these people decide to self medicate. I am a surgical nurse and have seen what the effects of these drugs do. If giving Narcan to overdose patients to have on hand at home in case of repeat overdoses then I’m all for it. These patients get another chance at life and another chance to decide hopefully to quit drugs.
