Naloxone (Narcan) SAVES lives.  

Why Narcan?

  • It is SAFE since it ONLY affects people with opioids in their system.
  • It has NO abuse potential or street value.
  • When overdosing a person’s automatic drive to breathe is diminished. Narcan "steals the spot" of the opioid in the brain receptor site for 30 - 90 minutes so breathing can resume. 
  • Works on ANY opioid (prescription or street)!
  • Good Samaritan Laws protect those who administer Narcan during an overdose.
