In Connecticut, residents are more likely to die from an unintentional drug overdose than a car accident. 1,359 people in Connecticut died last year from overdose. In the vast majority of these deaths, opioids were involved.

What Can You Do to Help Prevent an Overdose?
Naloxone is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It can quickly restore normal breathing to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped as a result of overdosing with heroin or prescription opioid pain medications.
