About Naloxone and Narcan:
The drug Naloxone (more commonly known as a product called Narcan) can reverse the effects of opiates and opioids (including heroin and many prescription painkillers) almost immediately when administered intravenously (with a needle) or intranasal (with a nasal spray). Emergency responders have carried Naloxone for many years, administering it under physician supervision when called to a scene of an overdose.
Poison Control or emergency medical staff would rely on the availability of Naloxone as an emergency measure to counter an overdose, where death from an overdose was likely.
