The contents of a drug overdose rescue kit are seen at a training session about how to administer naloxone, which reverses the effects of heroin and prescription painkillers, in Buffalo, N.Y. Opioid poisonings and overdoses are sending rising numbers of U.S. kids to the hospital. That’s according to a study also showing a surge in potentially life-threatening reactions. Prescription painkillers were often involved, but heroin and other opioids also were used.
