What is Narcan*?
Narcan counteracts the life-threatening effects of an opioid overdose.Ã‚Â Opioids include heroin and prescription pain pills such as oxycodone and morphine.Ã‚Â Since most accidental overdoses occur in a home setting, it was developed for first responders, as well as family friends, and caregivers- with no medical training required.
*You will receive a free Narcan kit at the completion of the training.
