Recovery is possible
Jasmine from White Butterfly Project shared with us how Narcan wasn’t around when she was using heroin. Now, Narcan rescue kits are available to stop and reverse opioid overdoses. Since she got sober, she tries to save lives by training people how to use Narcan. She told us she can’t imagine letting someone die by not administering Narcan when it’s available. You don’t need to be a police officer, EMT, or a nurse to administer Narcan. Order a Narcan rescue kit at no cost online at LorainCountyHealth.com/opioids or call us 440-322-6367.
If you’re in active addiction, there are options. Talk to your doctor about medication-assisted treatment like buprenorphine, suboxone, and methadone. Opioid addiction treatment is available. Recovery is possible.
