My name is Luis Garcia and I teach others how to save lives.
I have never tried drugs, been arrested or been intoxicated. I don’t make any money from employment in the addiction field. I am not in any type of 12 Step recovery program.
Nobody I know has been impacted by Substance Use Disorder, but this is a disease that could affect anyone.
I retired from a 28 year career as a Firefighter/Paramedic . In December, 2015, the FDA approved a nasal spray version of the Narcan I had administered over 3,000 times in my 911 career.
Narcan literally brings people back from the dead minutes after they stop breathing, with no side effects. I knew that this was the way I wanted to help fight the Opioid Pandemic.
The 4mg high dosage Narcan nasal spray I purchase and give out is FDA approved for layperson usage and is 91% effective in reversing cardiopulmonary arrest if a single dose is administered within 8 minutes of collapse. I have administered this nasal spray as a citizen 12 times, and 11 of those persons survived the cardiac arrest with Narcan.
All money raised on GoFundMe will be used to pay expenses and the purchase of Narcan. Starting on January 1,2019, I will be on a two year mission to travel to the areas of America where Narcan resources are lacking.
NOBODY chooses a life of pain, anguish and suffering.
EVERY life is worth saving...With Narcan, fellow human beings can once again become productive members of society......... No matter how long it takes to achieve sobriety.
Dead people do not have a chance at recovery.
