A FREE community-based drug overdose education and Naloxone distribution program. Naloxone is a medication that can reverse an opioid/opiate (like heroin or fentanyl) overdose by blocking the effects of opioids on the brain, restoring breathing within two to eight minutes. Naloxone has no potential for abuse, and if given to a person not experiencing opioid overdose, Naloxone is harmless. Naloxone does not reverse overdoses caused by non-opioid drugs. Call for more information. Walk-ins and/or appointments available.
