A Life Saving Partnership
One of the best parts about working for the NAS Research team is that we get to work with so many amazing organizations around the city that are working with us to end the war with opioid addiction. One of these awesome organizations is the San Antonio Fire Department.
Together with their Department's Mobile Integrated Healthcare Unit, we are able to hear from people in the community who have just recently overdosed. From there everyone can help them to develop a healthcare plan that is personalized to them. We have seen that having this kind of connection with the community gives these overdose survivors a much better chance at changing their lives.
