What is Narcan*?

Narcan counteracts the life-threatening effects of an opioid overdose.  Opioids include heroin and prescription pain pills such as oxycodone and morphine.  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.
