Learn to use Narcan!
We are offering you an opportunity to be trained 
to administer the lifesaving drug,  naloxone (Narcan).
naloxone is an antidote used to reverse opioid overdoses. 
It is easily administered by a trained person. 

 

Naloxone (Narcan) is a medication designed to rapidly reverse an opioid overdose. It is an opioid antagonist, meaning that it binds to receptors in the brain and blocks the effects of opioids. It can quickly restore normal respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped due to overdosing with an opioid such as heroin or prescription medications.

We have started our Public Access Narcan (Narcan Box) Program. Narcan kits are now available at the Wellness Pharmacy in Tannersville, NY.

The kits are made available for emergency use, to persons who feel they may need use of it in the future and to friends and family who have concerns about their loved ones. The kit is free, there is no charge.

Also: If you require a narcan kit and reside on the mountain top (Ashland, Jewett, Haines Falls, Halcott, Hunter, Lexington, Maplecrest, Prattsville, Tannersville, Westkill, or Windham) please call and we will supply you with a kit.  518-560-4278
