Title: National Take-Home Naloxone (THN) Programme Scotland
Summary: In the decade 2002-2012 the number of drug-related deaths (DRDs) registered in Scotland increased and the rate of DRDs is higher than those seen in other parts of the UK. The majority of these deaths are due to fatal accidental opioid ovedoses. Naloxone is a “competitive opioid antagonist”, which can temporarily relieve dangerous symptoms caused by high levels of opioids in the blood by temporarily removing them from receptors in the brain. In the event of an overdose this provides valuable extra time for emergency services to arrive and deliver treatment. The aim of the National Take Home Naloxone (THN) Programme is to contribute to a reduction in DRDs in Scotland through the provision of THN kits and specialist training to opioid users, their friends, family, carers, partners and other people they associate with and who are likely to be in the vicinity if an overdose occurs. Kits are distributed in community health settings and in prisons at the point of liberation. >>
