How the USPS Crisis Impacts the Opioid Crisis


Shoshi Aronowitz, PhD, CRNP co-authored a piece that reflected on the ways that the current postal service crisis has negatively impacted those affected by the opioid crisis. Recently, there have been large delays in mail delivery as a result of the reduction of post office hours, limited work hours for postal carriers, and other changes. The authors discuss the fact that many people depend on the USPS to receive naloxone, the drug that can reverse opioid overdoses. A partnership between the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH), NEXT Naloxone, and SOL Collective sends naloxone to Philadelphia residents for free in the mail. Read more about how the postal service crisis is impacting the timely delivery of this life saving medication.
