How to administer Naloxone during the COVID-19 pandemic
The most critical step is to always call 911
If there is no response after you have administered the Naloxone Nasal Spray in 2-3 minutes, a second dose should be administered.
Rescue breathing, even with a breathing mask may carry a risk for COVID-19 transmission. There is no mandate that rescue breathing must be given, it is encouraged to avoid giving rescue breaths during this period of COVID 19
Chest compressions are encouraged with the use of gloves. Administer 30 compressions making sure the chest rises after each compression.
And you matter to us.
Comeback is an initiative of Families Against Narcotics that aims to assist survivors of drug overdoses. Within days of a person experiencing a non-fatal drug overdose, a Quick Response Team–comprised of a police officer, a medical professional and a recovery coach–will perform a post-overdose wellness check to offer the individual the help and resources they deserve.
The program currently runs in partnership with the Sterling Heights Police Department.
