Almost Half of Adults Have Been Affected By Family Problems with Drugs or Alcohol
Almost half of American adults say they have been affected by problems with drugs or alcohol in their families, according to a new Gallup poll.
A variety of drugs and drug combinations carry the risk of fatal overdose. Emergency protocol for any suspected overdose includes calling 911. However, in the case of opioids, which includes heroin and prescription pain medications like Vicodin, OxyContin and Percocet, naloxone (also known by the brand name Narcan) can reverse an overdose, potentially saving a loved one’s life.
