MCC Offers Narcan Training & Accessibility

Narcan plays a vital role in mitigating opioid overdose deaths. MCC has begun an initiative of training individuals, groups and businesses on the mountaintop to properly administer this life saving medication as well as establishing publicly accessible Narcan Kits in strategic locations. Naloxone (Narcan) swiftly counters opioid overdose, binding to brain receptors to halt opioid effects. It restores normal respiration when breathing slows or ceases from opioid misuse.

Help Save Lives

Donations will assist MCC in offering more frequent Narcan trainings, provide increased community awareness through educational campaigns, and to increase public Narcan Kits to maximize accessibility.

Hire Additional CRPA

Certified Recovery Peer Advocates (CRPA)

CRPAs bring recovery expertise, training, and personal experiences to enhance treatment engagement and dedication. They foster connections to supportive resources, aid community education, and align with discharge plans. To meet growing demand and uphold our support commitment, MCC aims to hire another qualified CRPA by January 2025.
