The Time to Implement a Naloxone Program is Now!


(CHICOPEE, MA Dec. 2014) – Deaths from prescription painkillers have reached epidemic levels in the past decade and only recently has it been recognized as a public health crisis. 114 people die every day in the United States from drug overdose.
Health care providers wrote 259 million prescriptions for painkillers in 2012, enough for every American adult to have a bottle of pills. Drug abuse causes 2.5 million emergency department visits annually.

It’s common sense that more prescriptions equals more abuse, which equates to more overdoses. It’s also common sense that the time for first responders to be proactive and implement a naloxone program for their community is now.

However your program is structured, Iron Duck has three opioid overdose cases to suit your needs. Our Community Outreach kit features treatment instructions printed on the bag, with room on the other side of the pouch for personalization with outreach phone numbers, etc. Our professional single and double vial kits designed for first responders will safely carry one to two vials of naloxone with room for related supplies.

Make a difference in your community today: equip your first responders and community with Iron Duck’s Opioid Overdose kits.
