Prevent Opioid Overdoses - We can with Narcan

Narcan - also called naloxone - is a medicine that may reverse an overdose caused by an opioid drug (Percocet, Vicodin, morphine, Demerol, heroin, Oxycontin). Narcan blocks the effect of the opioid on the brain and can help a person start breathing again. Narcan is an emergency medicine that may reverse the effects of an opioid, however additional medical care is needed - call 911 immediately. Narcan does not reverse overdoses caused by non-opioid drugs like cocaine, alcohol, methamphetamines and benzodiazepines.

Narcan kits are available through the Lorain County Project Dawn services. LCPH gives kits at no cost to community partners and residents that want a naloxone kit.
