The opioid epidemic has become a major problem in the United States of America, with over 70,000 drug overdose deaths in 2019. The latest federal data show more than 109,000 drug deaths in 2022, many from fentanyl. As a result, more communities and healthcare systems are looking to implement programs to help fight this crisis. One of the innovative ways to address this issue is through Naloxone Vending Machines.
What are Naloxone Vending Machines?
Naloxone Vending Machines dispense life-saving pre-packaged Narcan doses. Narcan, also known as naloxone, is a medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. By administering this medication, the overdose can be reversed and the person can breathe normally again. The availability of Naloxone Vending Machines can mean the difference between life and death.
