Narcan Kits

The Goal of These Kits: To provide our community with the ability to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose, utilizing harmless, non-addictive nasal spray Naloxone.

What is Naloxone? (brand name Narcan): Narcan is a completely harmless, non-addictive, and potentially lifesaving nasal spray designed to help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose in minutes. Since most opioid overdoses occur in the home and are most often witnessed, having a Narcan rescue kit nearby can make all the difference. Learn more at: www.narcan.com/

Why should I have it? As the ease to purchase counterfeit pills online and fentanyl-related poisonings have risen dramatically in communities locally and nationwide, it is vital for those who work or raise youth to have Narcan on-hand. Providing the education and ability to save lives into the hands of our youth creates a more informed, caring community, and emboldens all who are affected by the opioid epidemic.

Mythbusters:

     Narcan causes no harm! Safe for pets/children/or those suffering from an OD from something else.

 

     Know the California Good Samaritan Law-all parties are protected even with drugs @ the scene.

 

     After 13 min of no oxygen-the brain cannot recover. Rescue breathing, chest compressions are the most important part!

 

     Sometimes it takes multiple doses to revive someone-so keep giving every 2-3 minutes until EMS shows up. Doses may only last anywhere from 30-90       minutes, so keep an eye on your person in case they go back into OD.

 

     Narcan has a shelf life of up to 20 years-w/ an A grade of 90% effectiveness -ignore the expiration date or donate to your local harm reduction       center.

 

     Too hot or too cold? Not a thing! Studies have shown Naloxone is extremely resilient and will not lose potency due to exposure to varying  temps.

 

     Narcan is available at most pharmacies in CA & is now over the counter.
