SAVE A LIFE: What is Narcan?:
Narcan is a prescription drug that reverses an opioid overdose. Opioids include heroin, and prescription pain pills such as oxycodone, codeine, and morphine.
WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
Our community continues to battle a heroin and opiate epidemic that has taken many of our loved ones. Narcan SAVES LIVES.
