Naloxone Saves Lives, but Is No Cure

Sarah Connolly, 26, said she was alive because of naloxone. Seven years ago she was revived after overdosing. After overdosing, she left an emergency room to find more heroin.

She continued to use heroin, but stopped cold when she became pregnant. Now she is unrecognizable from her days of addiction. She moved to Maine, married her son’s father, is pregnant with their second child, and is studying to be a high school English teacher.

“I have a real sense of purpose now,” she said. “I believe I’m a miracle because I had a second chance.”
Critics say the highly effective antidote provides a safety net for those who keep abusing drugs, enabling them to be revived over and over.
