The Foundation for the Responsible Administration of Emergency Medicines is a non-profit organization dedicated to awareness and education of issues surrounding opioid overdose and the emergency administration of naloxone.
Part of the organization’s role is also in the development of standard setting for naloxone administration by bystanders.
The goal of the Foundation is to reduce death and injury associated with opioid use by providing education on naloxone use, while recognizing that longer term solutions to curb opioid use need to be developed to improve the health of our communities and address the social issues surrounding opioid use.
