How Bands & Venues Are Adopting Narcan in The Fight Against The Opioid Crisis

Too many people in Sadie Dupuis’ life have fallen victim to drug overdoses.

The frontwoman for indie rock band Speedy Ortiz says she has regularly lost one friend each year – and sometimes as many as multiple friends in a month. The most recent loss came in February 2019. “I was feeling so terrible about it,” she says of her friend’s passing. “I was so sad that there are these friends who I had no idea were using, and I’ll never get them back again.”
