In Michigan we now have more options to get a hold of Narcan a life-saving drug

Just on the heals of pharmacies giving away free Narcan for one day only, there is now a new way to get the drug into your hands. Narcan can be purchased online. Of course the fee is a tad higher then pharmacy prices, but there reasons some buy it online.

James Lott, founder of Naloxone Exchange, told The Detroit Free Press explains why ordering the opioid overdose reversing drug on line is important..

ordering online might make the difference for someone who is worried about being seen asking for it from a pharmacist or whose local pharmacy doesn't carry it.

Also, experts suggest that the increase in awareness and availability of Narcan is one of the reasons the number of overdose deaths appears to be declining slightly.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse released a very frightening static...

In 2017, there were 2,033 overdose deaths involving opioids in Michigana rate of 21.2 deaths per 100,000 persons, which is higher than the national rate of 14.6 deaths per 100,000 persons.

Knowing that seconds matter when someone experiences an over-dose, it is good that people in Michigan have options on how to obtain this life saving drug!
