In 2014, Georgia passed the Medical Amnesty Law. This law stipulates, "that anyone seeking medical assistance for themselves or someone else for a drug overdose cannot be charged with a drug violation if the evidence of the drug violation results 'solely from seeking such medical assistance.'” The Medical Association of Georgia Foundation.
Since then, Georgia Overdose Prevention, an all volunteer organization of people whose lives have been impacted by the death of a friend or family member from opiates and opioids, has taught thousands of Georgians how to administer NARCAN® Nasal Spray* during an overdose crisis.
Over 3357 reversals have been reported. That's 3357 lives saved to date.
