Naloxone (Narcan) can be a life-saving medication in the event of an overdose of heroin, fentanyl or prescription pain relievers-it works by blocking the effects of opioids and reverses the overdose. Trained individuals are allowed to possess and administer naloxone. Research has shown that with basic training, non-medical professionals, such as friends and family members can administer naloxone. Naloxone access is an important step in a comprehensive set of actions underway statewide to reverse this serious opioid crisis and save lives. Free naloxone kits will be distributed after the Lunch-n-Learn from 1:00-1:30pm. It is not necessary to attend the Lunch-n-Learn from 11:30-1pm to access the free Naloxone Kits. In order to access a free kit, individuals will need to attend the brief instructional program at
1pm and kits will be distributed from 1:15 to 1:30 pm.
