Naxos Neighbors has designed an app, Naxos OD, that provides opioid overdose observers with an anonymous, one button press to connect with a trained neighbor responder, ready to administer naloxone in a matter of minutes. Responders can also provide addiction resources and support for the person in need. Naxos OD is currently planning a release in the South Bend, IN area.

How does naloxone work?
Naloxone reverses the effects of an opioid overdose by knocking the opioids off brain receptors. The breathing of a person who is overdosing can slow or stop, resulting in death. Naloxone can restore normal respiration to the person, preventing brain damage or death.
