10:16 pm
as much naloxone into a high risk community as possible, in the hopes that anytime an overdosed is witness, somebody there has naloxone. think about vaccinating a community against death from overdose. >> reporter: 120 people died right here in san francisco because of a heroin overdose in 2000. the health department says in 2014 that number actually dropped to 30. despite that, the argument out there that continues to be heard is whether or not narcan actually allows the addiction cycle to continue. >> i disagree. having a fire extinguisher in your kitchen is a good idea. i don't think having a fire extinguisher in your kitchen makes you more likely to light your dinner on fire. >> reporter: record of substance abuse research for the san francisco public health department. he says heroin use has spiked in neighborhoods all over the city. >> a transition as we sort of tried to clamp down on opioid prescribing because we

10:18 pm
conferences, people want to hear about what we're doing here. >> reporter: medical director of substance abuse says the city is leaving -- leading the way. >> every health department. >> medication assisted treatment basically on demand, same day access. >> reporter: naloxone is saving lives, the city had 62 reported bystander reversals in 2010. last year, that number reached 599. >> that's 599 bystander reversals by laypeople, plus 400 rescue naloxone cases by emt. >> reporter: but it's popularity is now becoming a problem. >> we're almost out. i've been on the phone all morning with programs that are out. wheeler says narcan is getting more expensive and because it is, the dope project is struggling to meet demand from groups that handed out -- hand it out for free. >> least expensive is $15 per vial. so each kit we distribute has
10:19 pm
two files so that is $30. for one kit. and so if i have and we give out thousands a year -- so i care for them. >> reporter: that is frustrating because narcan has a much deeper value. >> what we're doing is empowering people who use drugs, who are incredibly stigmatized and marginalized in our society, giving them a tool to take care of themselves. >> reporter: for nicholas clark, he tried getting of heroin. describing that experience as throbbing pain, arthritis of the mind, body and soul. >> the worst thing about heroin is that it's never enough. you know, it's this blackhole of dissatisfaction. and in order to be in possession of that kind of dissatisfaction, you have to literally give up anything and

everything you care about. it's a real rip off. >> reporter: the story of opiate addiction from the streets to the nonprofits, medics and doctors. >> it's a lot harder to deal with addiction then overdose, but if people don't survive, then that's the tragedy right there. they never get a chance. >> asking yourself, why am i here? >> right. exactly, why are we here, what are we trying to do? if it's not to help people, at least get a chance, that i don't know what we're doing. >> reporter: ems 6, searching the streets one day at a time, reaching out a hand, hoping someone grabs hold and never lets go. ktvu, fox 2 news. >> it is like that woman said, a lot harder dealing with the addiction than the overdose. >> and you see nicholas and he looks so sad, the way he was talking and saying, you give up

foggy, those are in the 40s and low 50s. that's your tuesday morning start. there's the system sitting offshore, a little glitch in the imagery that are coming from the satellite, but basically the system right in here is going to stay off our coast now for the next couple days. as it does, it's going to keep us cooler, bring in the clouds, more fog and then by thursday night or per -- friday, thundershowers. there's window there right now, let's look at sfo, sustained at 13. so not real windy but breezy. this high pressure center weekend today, that's why we cooled off, or that fog pushed inland. high-pressure weakens further tomorrow, big drop off, instead of 80s like we saw the other day, temperatures mainly in the 70s. and 60s. lots of 60s. so the forecast for tomorrow morning, there is. the fog basically. see how far inland up into the delta, then, the fog is kind of underneath it, you saw the high

band, they moved independent of the terrain, why they pushed in so quick. 5:00, high clouds from the system offshore, and it's a soupy mess. there we are into wednesday morning, it continues and you see a little bit of instability develop is that low is closer, days are long, a little bit of convection and there you see more convection by wednesday afternoon when the heating really happens. so this rotation is going to be like this, would be hard for wednesday night, for one of those to spin around. into thursday morning, not very warm so it lies down. what happens when the heat of day fires up. so there's the instability. that's our best chance in this period for a scattered shower, thundershowers in the mountains, wouldn't be hard to see a severe thundershowers in the foothills like we saw last week, when we had the funnel cloud or the waterspout on berryessa. some unstable weather, chance of a shower, the main impact that all of us across the board feel will be the mild daytime
10:48 pm
highs, you'll see that in the five-day forecast. so tomorrow, still some 70s but then down to the 60s, slight chance wednesday but really all about thursday afternoon, and then again, about friday afternoon. five-day forecast, going to be interesting for sure. we are definitely looking at a good chance, thursday afternoon into friday, there's a good chance for a thunder shower or a shower. but -- >> got to worry about fires at all? >> it's a double-edged sword because it would be nice to get rain but you are not going to get enough rain, the fire could be an issue. >> thanks, bill. sports is next. sports is next. pablo sandoval in

sports is next. pablo sandoval in i want to show you some cutting edge technology. this is a vhs tape. push that tape in and hit play. this is a flip phone. have you seen these before? it's called a compact disc. oh. looks like we're getting a facsimile. what year is it to you? it's old. you'd rather use newer technology? definitely. well, i've got something to show you. this is the 2016 chevy volt. it uses extended range electric technology. the prius hybrid uses battery technology developed 15 years ago. chevy expects volt drivers to get over a thousand miles between fill ups. it's got every technology there is. the prius actually belongs on the table.

sports wrap, presented by bank of the west. go west, bank of the west. it was a tough loss to nice for the a's. >> yeah. they are getting used to that unfortunately. you know? not what you want to do used to. you think about it, until something changes, they have to swallow it for a while. memories of a terrible year, last season which included too many errors, leading to too many one run losses like tonight. the not so distant replay, here we go again, oakland tonight, looking good early, second inning, khris davis starting to come on of late, they brought him here to provide power, that
10:52 pm
he does with a crank to left, the a's lead 1-0. just getting started, but here comes trouble, the former giant stealing third, his throw, mark canha, does knock the ball down, incomes nouri, a big error. very huge because in the bottom of the seventh, here is khris davis again, with a man on, ticket to ride, two-run shot, his fifth of the year, the a's are within 4-3 but that's as close as they get on the 445 foot shot, final score, another of those one run losses. two on in the bottom of the knights by the way. it was not the homecoming that johnny cueto dreamed about, but in spanish or english, he would not need a translator to tell you only one thing mattered about his return to the city he started his career in. giants win, that's all you need to know other than a pretty big sandwich in cincinnati. that guy is having a heaping helping.
10:53 pm
johnny cueto, the early giants lead. seeing eye single to right. by the first baseman, the second baseman, two runs scored, three run second inning for san francisco. cueto gives up six in the third, big below, joey votto, three run jack, the reds led 6- 3 after three but here come the giants, five-run seventh, brandon crawford, slow start but not tonight, three run shot, nothing like those homers, he knocked in four on the game, the winning pitcher is massaro just from the minor leagues. the first of three in cincinnati. giant fans, when is the last time you saw a panda hat at the ballpark? they are available at yard sales all of the bay area. not a hot seller in boston either. nothing good it seems has happened for pot low since the
10:54 pm
day he left the bay, the trend continues for the man who once hit three home runs in a world series game for the giants. the red sox announced sandoval will undergo season-ending surgery on his ailing left shoulder, bad news for boston, only in the second year of a five-year, $92 million contract with them. another name from giant floor, days gone by, he has been invisible, the invisible man for the past several months but tim lincecum will reveal himself to major-league scouts this friday, the answer to the question, whatever happened to tim lincecum? going to be answered in the showcase session in arizona. two-time cy young award-winning pitcher has not thrown on the mound since hip surgery. apparently ended his giants career although san francisco is one of a reported 20 teams that will have a watchful eye on him at the end of the week. not that anyone wants to look too far ahead, but let's do it anyway. warriors would meet either the
10:55 pm
spurs or thunder next in the western finals. what an entertaining for many reasons, the series is turning into, kevin durand, russell westbrook, shake it off, guys. not a couple happy campers. they were leaving at this point. the same dramatic tool connecting here, westbrook will get it to durand, the soft j, okc up five with 33.2 seconds left. spurs have lamarcus aldridge, this guy is on fire, 41 points, hit a three right there, they are within two with 25.8 left. watch this. 13.5 left, okc inbounds, dion waiters elbow, nothing is called, the spurs steal the ball, ginobili sees it in the corner, and no go. okc comes down with the ball, ginobili is screaming foul on the inbound. so is the coach. nothing doing for pop. and the spurs. the series is tied 1-1. soon,
10:56 pm
going back to okc for game three while as expected, the cavs handling atlanta in their opener, lebron muscles for 25 points. and let's go to a weekend, though highlight here you might have missed, kind of a cute moment, every now and then you see kids these days, just don't know the value of a souvenir baseball. it happened in texas, mitch moreland, deep shot to write for the rangers. that's all well and good. pop and his little daughter scramble for the home run ball. eventually, the little girl will get it. you guys want it back? there you go. that is like, what are you doing? hang onto that thing. it's all right. >> [ laughter ] >> alternate okay. >> the rangers got her an autographed ball. >> i heard the whole team autographed it. >> good night.

okay, hold still, honey. i'm afraid you're going to hit me again. don't worry. i'm just putting this time. i'm not the strongest golfer, and i think it's holding me back in business. too bad deals aren't closed in a trampoline park. i'd just lazy-back into a rudolph into a quadriffus right up the corporate ladder. hey, dad, you coming to my play tonight? "your" play? you only painted the sets. yeah, and michelangelo "only" painted the sixteenth chapel. maybe don't keep your face so close to the paint cans. sorry, buddy, i'm getting a golf lesson and then i'm playing with a client, but i'll try to make your next performance. (doorbell rings, thud) phil! little busy. oh, you always do this. you cram stuff in the freezer without thinking about it. i opened the door, and a frozen turkey almost fell on my foot. i keep pulling it to the left. are we sure the house is level? are you not the least bit sorry? i could have broken a toe. honey, i'm sorry for dozens of things every day that actually happen. if i start apologizing for things that don't happen, how productive of a person would i be? hey, your golf pro's here! (singsongy) hola, hola. hello, everybody!
