Every year in North Carolina more than 3.300 people die from an opioid overdose. NARCAN is an FDA-approved medication that can help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose in just minutes.
If you or someone you know is struggling with opioid addiction, pick up a free Narcan rescue kit and receive training on how to administer it. Also available will be information on recognizing an overdose, understanding the risks of relapse after a period of abstinence, and developing a relapse prevention plan.
