The Weaponization of Narcan
Narcan, the trade name of the opiate antidote naloxone, has become a part of the modern lexicon. It can even be found in the Urban Dictionary. Although initially a noun, it is now a widely used verb as in, “I Narcanned that patient,” or, “I Narcanned your Honor Student.” Narcan is so effective that we have even dreamed up imaginary clinical situations to administer it.

A Promising Way to Help Drug Users Is ‘Severely Lacking’ Around the World, Report Says
Global funding for harm reduction programs is in “crisis,” according to the latest Global State of Harm Reduction report, potentially threatening the effectiveness of HIV, hepatitis and drug overdose relief programs worldwide. Harm reduction policies and programs are meant to curb the negative effects associated with illicit drug use — such as overdoses and the spread of blood-borne illnesses like HIV and hepatitis C — rather than focusing solely on stopping substance use. Proponents, and plenty of research, suggest these practices can have a sizable impact on public health, and help drug users who ...

US Life Expectency Drops; Drug Overdoses & Suicide To Blame

Changing dynamics of the drug overdose epidemic in the United States from 1979 through 2016
Better understanding of the dynamics of the current U.S. overdose epidemic may aid in the development of more effective prevention and control strategies. We analyzed records of 599,255 deaths from 1979 through 2016 from the National Vital Statistics System in which accidental drug poisoning was identified as the main cause of death. By examining all available data on accidental poisoning deaths back to 1979 and showing that the overall 38-year curve is exponential, we provide evidence that the current wave of opioid overdose deaths (due to prescription opioids, heroin, and fentanyl) may just be the latest manifestation of...
