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 Rx Pharmacy in Tannersville, NY, Higher Grounds Coffee Shop in Windham, The Mountaintop Library in Tannersville, NY, the 
Plaza Laundry in Prattsville, NY and the Halcott Grange, Halcott Center, NY.


The kits are made available for emergency use and 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
