Approximately 108,000 people died last year from a drug overdose with Georgia Рa 56% increase. Harm Reduction Programs in Georgia incorporate the law passed in 2014 that allows anyone to have access to Naloxone, a drug that reverses the effects of opioids like Heroin and Fentanyl. This month, Dr. Brown talks with Robin Elliot and Laurie Fugitt, who were part of the team that worked to get this groundbreaking law passed. Robin and Laurie discuss the impact the law has had in Georgia, as well as how anyone can access Naloxone for themselves or people in their lives. In addition, they explain how to use the different versions of Naloxone and how you can save someone’s life by being prepared and acting quickly. Tune in to watch these amazing women educate us on access to Naloxone in Georgia.
