WHY: Naloxone is a life-saving drug that can revive overdose victims. Its brand name is Narcan. Naloxone (Narcan) helps restore breathing to a person who is overdosing from opioid drugs such as heroin and prescription drugs such as oxycontin, oxycodone and fentanyl. It works quickly and gives emergency responders time to get the person to a hospital. Naloxone training participants will learn how to administer the lifesaving antidote which can reverse the fatal effects of an opioid overdose; and receive a free Narcan kit.
