Opiod Overdose Rescue Program: "Prescribe To Prevent"
Hometown Apothecary Drugs is pleased to be a participant in the national Prescribe To Prevent program.
"Prescribe to Prevent" is a national advocacy group, with the goal of reducing opiod overdose through education, awareness and preparedness. We are prescribers, pharmacists, public health workers, lawyers, and researchers working on overdose prevention and naloxone access. We compiled these resources to help health care providers educate their patients to reduce overdose risk and provide naloxone rescue kits to patients and in Pennsylvania family members, friends and other caregivers. With these goals in mind, Hometown Apothecary, will work closely with local pain and substance abuse clinics, as well as any other opiod prescribers to aid in the prescribing of naloxone and providing community awareness. Please go to prescribetoprevent.org for a comprehensive description of the work of our group.
