Preview Clip

Saskatchewan is starting a pilot program aimed at helping reduce opioid overdoses before emergency help can arrive. A take-home kit with an antidote to opioids such as fentanyl, morphine, heroin, methadone or oxycodone is soon to be available at a pilot site in Saskatoon. Health Minister Dustin Duncan says that's where the biggest problem is right now. (Saskatchewan is actually lagging behind Alberta and British Columbia, which both distribute the take-home naloxone kits across their provinces.)
