OpiRescue Delaware is a free, state supported app that provides lifesaving step-by-step directions on how to use naloxone during an opioid overdose. About 80 percent of all overdoses happen in a private residence, which is why friends, family members, and those struggling with opioid addiction are strongly encouraged to download this app. The app contains detailed information on how to recognize signs of an overdose, and includes animations on how to provide rescue breathing and administer naloxone, an overdose reversing medication. Additionally, individuals can use the app to find the nearest available pharmacy carrying naloxone, which can be purchased without a prescription. There is also an easy-to-navigate button, linking people to the state’s HelpIsHereDE.com website that provides resources for those struggling with addiction including, treatment, the crisis hotline, and syringe exchange information. Lastly, individuals can report their opioid overdose rescue; no personal information will be collected. This app is not intended to replace 9-1-1 emergency assistance. Individuals are always encouraged to call 9-1-1 during an overdose.
