CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Health officials say they hope the installation of new rescue response kits on college campuses and treatment facilities will help reduce opioid overdoses in West Virginia. ONEbox is a one-of-a-kind, technology-enabled opioid overdose rescue response kit intended to contain two doses of the opioid reversal drug naloxone along with personal protective equipment.
The box also contains video instructions that are activated when ONEbox is opened.
“We know that overdoses can happen to anyone at any time anywhere and so having this medication readily available, it is the only medication that can reverse an overdose, is so crucial and important,” Dr. Susan Bissett, president of the West Virginia Drug Intervention Institute, told MetroNews.
