NADDI supports nasal naloxone
The National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) has taken a position to encourage law enforcement agencies to adopt policies that would allow officers to carry nasal naloxone with them to administer to individuals involved in a an opioid overdose. Proper training and certification by the proper authority of each state helps to ensure proper use of nasal naloxone on those in distress due to a drug overdose.
It is the opinion of the NADDI Executive Board that the ready availability of this product will ultimately save many lives, as police officers are oftentimes the first responders where delays of only a few seconds can mean the difference between life and death.
