1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

Drug users can be trained to identify opioid overdoses

    I found this interesting, as there is very little other research done about these training programs which include giving naloxone to addicts. This study only focused on how well trained drug users can identify opioid overdose. Unfortunately, this and the only other relevant study that I am aware of (Journal of Urban Health 2005 Jun;82(2):303-11) use very low sample sizes.
