LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Waismann Method®, the premier rapid detox center in the nation, is calling for free access to Narcan, a lifesaving medication used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, in response to the growing fentanyl epidemic. The FDA panel will soon be deciding on possibly approving over-the-counter sale of Narcan. However, the medication can still be expensive, making it difficult for those who need it most to access it. Clare Waismann M-RAS/ SUDCC II, the founder of Waismann Method, is urging that Narcan be made available at no cost to all those who need it.
The opioid epidemic has already taken countless lives, and the situation is only getting worse with the influx of deadly illicit fentanyl. Fentanyl has become increasingly prevalent in the drug market, and it is estimated that dozens, if not hundreds, of people are dying every day as a result. Making Narcan readily available and free of cost can be the difference between life and death.
“We need to do everything we can to help those who are at risk of overdose,” said Clare Waismann. “By providing free access to Narcan, we are not only helping save lives, but are also promoting a culture of education, awareness, and support which are essential in the fight against this devastating crisis.”
