ACROSS THE U.S. - Family and friends of drug users can now use a tool to help a loved one that has overdosed.

The FDA approved a new device to treat those people. The device is called Evzio.
It's the size of a credit card and contains naloxone.

It is usually given by a syringe to people who've overdosed. The device gives verbal instructions to help administer the antidote.

FDA leaders say the tool is not a replacement to immediate medical care.

It should be in pharmacies this summer.
