http://www.wlwt.com/article/middletown-considers-3-strike-policy-on-responding-to-overdoses/10215284


Middletown is considering whether people with addiction should only be given two strikes before they’re out of chances at Narcan.

Middletown is struggling to deal with the heroin problem.

The number of overdoses jumped this year. Last year, there were 532 overdoses. So far, only halfway through 2017, there are already 577.

The number of deaths from overdoses is on track to increase, as well. Last year, there were 74 deaths. So far this year, there are 51.

City council member Dan Picard is proposing a three strikes system. After the first two overdose rescues, the person would perform community service for the equivalent amount of money used on the lifesaving response.

"If the dispatcher determines that the person who's overdosed is someone who's been part of the program for two previous overdoses and has not completed the community service and has not cooperated in the program, then we wouldn't dispatch,” said Dan Picard, Middletown city council member.

The fire department said they are required by law to provide Narcan if they do respond to an overdose.


Emergency services don't go to people based on how you feel about them. Emergency services go to people who need emergency medical help. Asking dispatchers to hang up while people OD is condemning them to die.

That's such s*** and would have zero effect anyway. Everyone would just get someone else to call and lie or say that they were poisoned.

Ah, an edited copy paste job by TC

Let's fill in the gaps, why not?


“We are faced with stress on our services, particularly the EMS services where we can do six to eight opioid overdose runs a day,” said Paul Lolli, fire chief of Middletown.


Hmm...

Also last year, the department spent more than $11,000 on Narcan. This year, $30,000 has been spent on it.

This is a result of more overdoses and the increasing strength of the drugs addicts are using, officials said.


Huh, what factual information left out!

BUT THE BEST PART IS HERE:

"If the dispatcher determines that the person who's overdosed is someone who's been part of the program for two previous overdoses and has not completed the community service and has not cooperated in the program, then we wouldn't dispatch,” said Dan Picard, Middletown city council member.

TC, please, f*** off trying to troll when I'm here. It doesn't work.

So let's apply this to everything. 3 seizures and you're left in the street. 3 car accidents and you bleed out on the side of the road. 3 hiking accidents and you gotta fix your own broken ankle on the trail. 

Because emergency services should be more concerned with what you're doing than providing emergency medical help that you need!

1. And? It's obvious this is due to rising costs and stress on emergency services. Doesn't make it right (or legal) to leave people to die. 

2. The tc did post the bolded part.

But bait topic aside: as someone that is considered an alcoholic by doctors (based on the amount I drink when I do drink): f*** people who get addicted.
Either power through the part where you stop drinking or go f*** yourself.
I stopped drinking for several months in order to get liver damage checked and I was fine afterwards. You don't get to say "I'm addicted". You get to say "I'm addicted and need help".

I honestly don't have a great deal of sympathy for someone that ODs, but if they're asking for help, f***ing send help. It doesn't matter that they did it to themselves, if they're asking for help, send it! If they end up dying, oh well, but everything reasonable should be done to help someone that is asking for it.

Man, if I get drunk, wind up in hospital with my stomach pumped because I'm drinking too much and have to make a return visit then no, I don't deserve their help. Hell, I've said this multiple f***ing times on CE: I would rather I be left to die on a cold street. 

People who start abusing wokers in government services don't get the help until they've sorted themselves out and get to talk in a reasonable and calm manner.

drug addicts don't deserve help until they stop f***ing abusing drugs. How is this so f***ing hard to understand?

"The first time nice doctor said if you keep drinking then we're going to have to do scans to see if your liver is failing. We need you to stop drinking for a few months to see how your liver is without alcohol. Otherwise you might end up needing more treatment"
What did I do?
I stopped f***ing drinking.
I still believe if I had of continued drinking during that then I should have been turned away.

I mean, really, how hard is it to understand?
you abuse government services, you get removed and cut off.
I go down to collect my weekly money to spend on booze and I punch the guy? Yes, I don't deserve that money anymore. I go down and tell the doctor "hey, thanks but I'm going to be back here because f*** you", well, I don't deserve his help.

    It doesn't matter at all. You're saying that people should be denied emergency medical treatment based on how you personally feel about them. What if only 10% recover and help their kids? Does that 10% of kids not deserve parents?

    It doesn't matter at all. You're saying that people should be denied emergency medical treatment based on how you personally feel about them. What if only 10% recover and help their kids? Does that 10% of kids not deserve parents?

    In your example does the 90% not recover and screw their children? what is better for the children if you look at the big picture?

    I don't know about you, but I would rather give 90% of the children a chance at a decent life (using your example) then the 10% who get lucky...

    That said, I don't like the over arching reasoning behind this. But I understand why it was proposed.

    Do you think people dying is the only way for their kids to go to foster care? What are you missing here?

    Certainly not, but it's definitely the most efficient route. I'm not advocating to kill all addicts, but I certainly don't give a f*** if they die because they od, that is simply a consequence of the life they chose.

    as i said above, that's fine...i think its a s***ty mentality but do you....but why are you ok with emergency services selectively choosing who they help? You're ok with paramedics screening who they help? "wait, that house? We just went there 3 months ago for an OD....its another OD? f*** that turn back, we're not helping them"....how it happened should be irrelevant. Someone needs help. they call 911. paramedics should go help them. Period.

    I wouldn't say I am ok with it, I definitely have my concerns with such a policy. To much room for error or mistakes and innocent people dying because of it.

    I just understand why they are considering it, there is a logical base behind it even if it's a dark one.
