Save SomeOne! That's the message from the new look information materials on Scotland's world-leading lifesaving community-based naloxone programme which are being launched across the country this week.

The materials enhance the focus on promoting the role of everyone in the community – frontline professionals engaging with drug users in any setting, drug users, families, friends and carers – in using naloxone to reverse life-threatening opioid overdose emergencies before emergency healthcare professionals can intervene.
