Drugs have become so out of control that Washington State has witnessed their first ever Narcan vending machines. Narcan nasal spray helps people suffering from an opioid overdose by reversing the drug’s harmful effects. It is what ambulance drivers carry when they encounter a person overdosing and need immediate help.
The machines were made possible by tSouthwest Washington Accountable Community of Health (SWACH), they say that “SWACH brings community partners together to create meaningful change that reduces cost and improves whole-person wellness for everyone. We develop programs and partnerships that empower innovative transformations that create positive change, foster community engagement, and voice, and build trust with compassion, integrity, transparency, and accountability.”
