The power to save a life is at your fingertips.
There is often time to intervene and save someone’s life if they overdosed on opioids–that is, if you know how. OpiRescue is a free smartphone app that guides you through the steps you need to take to use naloxone (Narcan) to stop the overdose.
That’s not all: OpiRescue will help you find naloxone and tell you about local addiction treatment centers. Download the free OpiRescue app from the App Store or Google Play today.
If you, a family member, or a friend is taking an opioid pain medication, you need two more things: naloxone and OpiRescue.
That’s because opioid overdoses can happen to anyone, even if they are using the medication because a doctor prescribed it. It’s easy to inadvertently take too many, mix them with other medications like anti-anxiety meds or sleeping pills, or mix them with alcohol.
If you have naloxone and OpiRescue you can stop the overdose and save a life.
OpiRescue shows you how to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose, where to find Naloxone, how to reverse an opioid overdose, plus other helpful resources for opioid users and their loved ones.
