Initially all staff and some clients/volunteers were trained in the administration of Naloxone and an ongoing training programme was established for residents. A stock of the drug was placed in easily accessible containers (similar to the break-glass boxes that operate the fire alarms) throughout strategic communal areas of the buildings.
To date we have had 16 incidents where Naloxone has undoubtedly saved lives and would recommend that any establishment that has the strong possibility of experiencing an opiate overdose consider engaging with this programme.
