Quote of the Day

"The naloxone shortage is going to hurt us. It is hurting us. People are dying now because of the shortage. More people are going to die because of it. Whatever your story is, you shouldn't have to die for how you choose to navigate your life and what's happened to you. We need naloxone everywhere. Opioid users didn't just appear out of nowhere -- everybody has someone that loves them, a father, a mother, a grandparent, a friend, niece, nephew, brother sister ... and you're important to that person. Naloxone can keep them from dying. It's harm reduction on a really intimate, yet grand scale because every OD death that is prevented means hundreds if not thousands of people prevented from losing and grieving."
