When someone overdoses on heroin or similar drugs (called opioids) and doesn’t receive immediate treatment, they can stop breathing and die rather quickly. But a new drug could save the life of someone you care about.

We frequently hear about these overdose tragedies on the news – actors, musicians, all sorts of celebrities, not to mention college and high school kids, housewives, professionals, and so on – no one is immune.
