We feel strongly that all patients on Buprenorphine for the medically assisted treatment of opioid addiction should be educated on the use of Naloxone. We have developed an educational program at AWS titled:
We offer this to all patients and their families. Patients are required to watch a training video created by AWS and participate in a hands-on demonstration which is designed to teach them how to administer intranasal naloxone, complete with sample vials and a mannequin. After completion of training, participants must pass a multiple choice test before receiving their Narcan Kit. This kit is complete with: one amp of naloxone, intranasal administrator, rescue breathing shield, and quick instruction guide.
