Max’s Mission is an outreach program to spread awareness of Naloxone – a medication used to stop the effects of opioids, especially in an overdose. The program was started by Max’s parents after their son passed away from an overdose four years ago, followed shortly afterward by the deaths of three more young men in the same way.
While Opioids are powerful medications in fighting pain, they are highly addictive and an overdose can easily lead to death. Naloxone has been shown to save lives in these situations. Max’s Mission invites the public to a meeting on Tuesday, December 13 from 7-9pm at the Medford Library, in order to promote the knowledge and use of Naloxone in combating the epidemic of opioid addiction and death.
