Within the span of two hours on Sunday evening, Wilton Police officers responded to two separate opioid overdose calls with unresponsive patients. In both instances the patients were saved by the administering of Narcan by either a friend or responding officers. Narcan is a brand name of Naloxone, a medicine that rapidly reverses an opioid overdose. It attaches to opioid receptors and reverses and blocks the effects of other opioids. Naloxone can quickly restore normal breathing to a person if their breathing has slowed or stopped because of an opioid overdose.
