A prescriber may, in good faith and with reasonable care, prescribe naloxone directly or by standing order to a person at risk of overdose or a family member, friend, or other person in a position to help a person at risk of overdose.
A prescriber may also prescribe naloxone to law enforcement agencies or organizations that promote harm reduction so that those agencies and organizations can then give naloxone to a person at risk of overdose or a family member, friend, or other person in a position to help a person at risk of overdose.
The State Health Director may issue a statewide standing order for naloxone.
A pharmacist may give naloxone to a person at risk of overdose or a family member, friend, or other person in a position to help a person at risk of overdose, or an agency or organization.
Agencies and organizations may give out naloxone so long as they include basic instruction and information on overdose.
Anyone who lawfully obtains naloxone may administer it, using reasonable care, to a person experiencing a drug-related overdose.
A practitioner who prescribes, a pharmacist who gives out, or a person who administers naloxone, or the state health director issuing a standing order, or any agency or organization giving out naloxone, is immune from civil or criminal liability.

A person who, acting in good faith calls for help for another person experiencing a drug-related overdose and
Reasonably believes they are the first person to call for help
Provides their own name to emergency personnel
Did not call for help during the ex*****on of a warrant or other lawful search is immune from prosecution for certain controlled substances crimes or possession or use of drug paraphernalia, so long as the evidence for the charge was discovered because the person called for help.
The person who calls for help cannot be subject to arrest or revocation of pretrial release, probation, parole, or post-release; however, the person’s probation officer may still drug test the person on pretrial release, probation, or parole.
These protections and restrictions also apply to the person who overdosed.


Everyone is someone and every life matters. We can end overdose. 🧡💜🖤


Everyone is someone and every life matters 🤍🧡


The confusing part of grief is it’s both incredibly heavy to carry but feels impossible to put down. If you’ve lost someone to overdose you’re not alone. Today we remember all those who left us too soon and fight for change in their honor. Breaking the stigma of addiction will save more lives than shame ever will. Everyone is someone and every life matters. 💜🖤🤍


Tomorrow is International Overdose Awareness Day, a time to remember and a time to act. We’ll be out at Greenfield Lake with Heart of Wilmington. Join us from 6-8 for resources, live music, community support, and c***ection 💜


Treatment fails 100% of the time when the person is dead. Narcan saves lives and offers a second chance. It doesn’t matter if it is the 10th second chance, it’s still a human life. If you’re struggling with addiction call the Quick Response Team, your life matters and we want to help. Call today •910-833-2052• 🖤🤟🏼

We can all take a lesson out of the LGBTQ+ Pride book. They have the bravery to take pride in who they are despite every indication that some other people might not like it. When who are you intrinsically are is received as a political statement, serious measures must be taken to preserve your self-esteem. When others try to shame you for who you are, pride is a life-saving response. Every person in the LGBTQ community is the embodiment of bravery and courage. Simply waking up in the morning and owning your true self is something we all need to practice. While you may not be hiding your preferred sexuality maybe you feel like you have to hide or restrain some other part of yourself. I challenge you to fully embrace it. Be your most authentic and true self and walk in it with confidence. Who you are is supposed to be unique and different-and in that there is perfection! never forget that.-Laura Hale Although Pride month is coming to end we at believe that we should celebrate/educate/discuss LGBTQIA YEAR ROUND🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️ for more info contact #lovewins#celebrateyourself #coastalhorizons

This week we will be looking at statistics and tracking. The Opioid epidemic has caused us to rethink our approach to treatment and recovery.North Carolina’s Opioid Action Plan was released in June 2017 with community partners to combat the opioid crisis. Updates to the plan were released in June 2019, and in May 2021 with an updated Opioid and Substance Use Action Plan Open Powerpoint File to continue to address the issue.

Since the plan was launched in 2017, opioid dispensing has decreased by 34 percent. Prescriptions for drugs used to treat opioid use disorders increased by 33 percent in that time frame, and opioid use disorder treatment specifically for uninsured and Medicaid beneficiaries is up by 48 percent.

Expectations in early recovery should be realistic. Recovery is a process and takes time. This picture says it all. The ID on the left is a man in the midst of severe addiction.His eyes tell the whole story. The same man on the right is full of life as a result of staying in the process of recovery. That recovering addict is me!!! 10 years of active recovery has lead to a wonderful and fulfilling job as a Peer Support Specialist working with . We do recover! It starts with a decision,followed by willingness to stay in the process! #peersupport
