I work in Delaware County, PA, which is currently in the midst of a severe opiate addiction, as it is on the heroin and opiate pipeline between Philadelphia, Chester, Wilmington, and Baltimore. I can’t tell you how many clients I have who have opiate addictions in addition to what they are coming to see me about.
While this is a good start, I think it is a crime that some insurances will not pay the $155 per dose to save someone’s life. Please write to your representative and the drug companies that produce this to argue for less cost, as a lot of people who overdose are of a lower socioeconomic status, and $155 is prohibitive.
However, for what it is worth, this is a good start.
