Larry Schieber, RPh: So last year we received a grant from Cardinal Health in order to buy naloxone to supply first responders, and when we started asking the questions about it we found out that a lot of the agencies had very little or no naloxone available to them, so they were quite appreciative. And since it has been distributed they've used quite a bit of it. It's truly been a very successful program.
