Nasal Spray To Reverse Drug Overdoses

New Mexico Department of Health is now providing a needle-free form of Narcan, a prescription drug that reverses a heroin overdose. Narcan is available in a nasal spray to drug users and their friends and families.

Eliminating needles reduces the risk of disease transmission and may increase the likelihood that people will use the life-saving drug. Dominick V. Zurlo, harm reduction outreach coordinator for Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless, said participants who have used the nasal Narcan have reported back very favorably as to its use.
