NorCo's Nalaxone Supply Exhausted

Bethlehem's Health Bureau, which distributes nalaxone to police departments throughout Northampton County, today confirmed the cupboard is bare. Health officials state they ordered a fresh supply in September, but are still waiting to receive kits from the state.

Nalaxone is used by police and other first responders to treat opioid overdose victims, and is credited with having saved lives.

Although some police departments still have kits, about five are completely out.

Stop spending money on people who knowingly try to commit suicide!

Narcan should be saved for accidental overdoses. These aren't accidents, they're attempting suicide, why stop them?

Narcan "saves lives", yeah right, nobody I wanna know...

This is nothing but the local government acting as an enabler. With my money.

Stupid sons a bitches!

You are an ugly person. Just two weeks ago, a friend of mine saw her son die after using a drug he did not know was laced with fentynol. He had no intention of committing suicide.

Laced with fentynol? So the kid was murdered...trick or treat style.

If heroin was legal and accessible he might be in rehab right now. The Portuguese model seems to be working quite well.

First responders should be supplied with nar-can and relatives should have access over the counter.

Purdue Pharma should be confiscated entirely and sold off Morganelli style it's executives jailed.

Sad about your friend.

Stories like this piss me off in light of the outrageous overspending on the forensics center. I've lost too and the thought that we're out of something so inexpensive and life saving is really too much.

Nalcan is being used faster than a speeding bullet. Would like to know many times it was used the past month. Crack down on these drug dealers. You can't trust to handle anything today. Shopping Carts, doors, how about paper money, hand railings, restaurant silverware, drinking glasses, bottles, you name it. Have to start wearing protective gloves and have disinfectent pads on hand wereever you go.

What a shame, I'm more concerned with a diabetic who needs insulin or the person who needs an epi pen for an allergic reaction..not some druggie who made a choice! Oh that's right it's a "disease" LMFAO

So put someone in a car and drive to where you can get it.
borrow from departments that can spare some.
should be able to make some calls and make it happen

Like I said, you're an ugly person.

waste of money saving druggies so they can get doped up again. Your friends son shouldn't have been using. TS - I have no caring feeling for druggies. They get what they deserve.

An infrequent user who worked hard and was decent to everyone is no "druggie," asshole.

I have heard rumors that there is now a market among the drug crowd and those who sell them drugs to sell the Nar-Can. You can get it free and then sell it!
