DIGGING DEEPER: Opoid Antidotes: Saving or Enabling. Thursday at Ten

Posted:

Every day across the country, people who overdose on Opioids are being revived with a drug called Naloxone.

The antidote can restore a person's breathing after it is injected or sprayed in the nostrils and quickly bring victims back from near-death.

Some call Naloxone the "miracle drug". Others believe it can serve as a safety net for addicts.

Hear from local law enforcement and the paramedics who administer Naloxone on a daily basis.
