there is a factual error in the news piece. Administering Naloxone to someone in pain not on opiates is not without problems. It blocks the bodies natural endorphins, and patients given naloxone not on opiates can have a psychosis from it.
But its application here, I am assuming most parents /caregivers/ spouses would not obtain this without actually knowing the person was an addict.
