Overdose Prevention Training (Narcan)
Narcan is a medication used to reverse the effects of an overdose from opioids, such as heroin, fentanyl, or prescription pain medications. Opioids can slow or stop a person's breathing, which may cause death. Naloxone (Narcan) keeps them breathing by blocking the body’s ability to absorb opiods, potentially saving a life.
Narcan kits can be obtained for FREE at Evergreen Health and training takes less than 10 minutes. Simply go to the Harm Reduction Center and ask for a Narcan kit and training certification. Walk-ins are welcome.
