video of HHCLA staff reversing an overdose & saving a life

In this clip, we see a woman who has overdosed on heroin being treated with naloxone by two of our staff members, Chloe and Allie. (All HHCLA staff are trained to respond to an opioid overdose with naloxone and rescue breathing). After approximately 10 minutes, the woman who overdosed is revived, and paramedics finally arrive. When the woman returned to HHCLA, Chloe and Allie were able to meet with her to discuss the incident, and she gave us permission to use this film in order to educate the public about how overdose deaths can be prevented. You can download the clip at www.antidoted.org and if you want more information about what we do at HHCLA, check us out at hhcla.org.

    I’ve gone through a 4x2hr harm reduction course that included naloxone administration (nasal). I’m in new mexico, and there’s a standing order for public health agencies to pescribed it as part of harm reduction for identified populations.
