The death rate from opioids in Oregon has decreased by 25 percent in recent years and medical experts say education and awareness have been the keys to that decline.
Now, an Oregon mother who lost her son to an overdose is in Bend tonight to spread the word about a drug that can save the life of an overdose victim.
Julia is holding another training session at the Deschutes County Services building on Wall Street on Thursday night, but there is still time to get down to the training and get information on how to administer the Naloxone. You also get two free doses of the nasal spray version of the drug, which can run about $90 over the counter.
If you can’t make it to the training there are at least eleven pharmacies in Central Oregon that will fill prescriptions for Naloxone:
