The abuse of opioid drugs is becoming a global epidemic – this is stated in the UN World Drug Report. Opioids cause death in 76% of all deaths due to drug use in the world. In recent years, the situation with opiate poisoning has become more complex as a result of the appearance in circulation of a large number of synthetic opioids, which are more toxic and stronger than heroin.
Last year, in Ukraine, only 389 cases of drug overdose among minors were officially recorded. Hundreds of thousands of lives could be saved by injecting Naloxone on time.
