Hope to It: Saving lives from drug overdoses with a reversal injection
More Americans were killed by accidental drug overdoses in 2013 than by traffic accidents or firearms, according to the CDC. As TODAY’s inspiring Hope to It series continues, we meet Chelsea Laliberte, the sister of a heroin overdose victim, who quit her job to dedicate her life to preventing the same thing from happening to other families. Laliberte supports training police departments in how to use the drug naloxone to counter the effects of an opioid overdose.
