Chicago Group Distributes Naloxone
    #4621105 - 09/05/05 12:47 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Chicago Group Distributes Naloxone
9/1/05 intox.com

Opiate users in Chicago can get free doses of naloxone, an anti-overdose medication, from the Chicago Recovery Alliance.

The Chicago Tribune reported Aug. 31 that the group has trained more than 5,000 people to use naloxone, and says the drug has saved the lives of at least 336 opiate addicts over the past four years. "As a physician, this is some of the most rewarding work I've ever done," said Dr. Sarz Maxwell, the group's medical director.

Drug users who get trained by outreach workers from the Alliance can then get naloxone and syringes from Maxwell.

Naloxone is commonly used in emergency rooms to revive overdose victims. But people are often to call authorities when someone overdoses, fearing prosecution. Maxwell said the drug "wakes people up enough that they can walk to the car and go to the hospital. That might be a better idea [to users] than inviting the cops up to your apartment where all your dope is laying out."

Dr. Richard Feldman, head of the emergency department at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, endorsed the training. "It's an extremely rapid-acting, effective and safe drug," he said.

However, Andrea Barthwell, formerly the demand-reduction chief at the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, said distributing naloxone to addicts reinforced their drug use. "If you engage in strategies that delay confrontation of the disease and application of curative strategies, you actually do more harm than good," Barthwell said.

this is also an additive to talwin rx
it is relitively ineffective when consumed orally,
but when the pills are crushed, the naloxone kills the pentazocines effectiveness.

"However, Andrea Barthwell, formerly the demand-reduction chief at the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, said distributing naloxone to addicts reinforced their drug use. "If you engage in strategies that delay confrontation of the disease and application of curative strategies, you actually do more harm than good," Barthwell said."

translation: "im so goddamn stupid, and i hate these washout junkies, i want them all to die then we can all be angels in heaven with Jesus and George Washington."

I suppose dying of an overdose is considered a "confrontation of the disease and application of curative strategies" to these people.... :thumbdown:

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."
