CONCORD - In response to the Governor's request, a task force headed by the State Department of Safety looked at the options available to reduce overdose deaths through making Narcan easier to access.
The report underscores the need. It shows in 2014 opiate related deaths in New Hampshire may be on track to double. So far this year 510 doses of Narcan have been used. Those who have administered describe it as a miracle drug.
The report recommends letting those in the law enforcement, safety and rescue and health care, who are not licensed in emergency medicine, to be able to use Narcan in an emergency.
It also recommends allowing friends and family of addicts to have easier access to the life saving drug.
