In The Region:

The state is trying to take on the addiction crisis from different angles, including trying out a new drug that can save lives.

As Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports, the attorney general’s office has streamlined the training to use this drug.

Naloxone can stop an overdose by reversing the effect that powerful painkillers called opioids have on the brain. But it needs to be used right after a possible overdose.

Policymakers have already approved legislation to get Naloxone to first responders. Now the attorney general’s office has produced a training video for the administration of the drug.

“When an individual overdoses on an opioid the brain’s trigger to breath is effectively turned off,” the instructional video stated.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says the use of online videos has been a helpful tool for quick training.

“Instead of me sending instructors tracing all over the state this enables them from any part of the state to access this—right now,” DeWine said.

DeWine says the video, which can be found on his office’s website, can also help the general public learn more about Naloxone.
