Striving to Make Narcan Available on the Mountain Top!

We are initiating a new program and we are hoping to reach more people in need throughout our mountaintop community.

If you wish training on how to use Narcan and/or you just need a Narcan kit please call us at 518-560-4278. We are ready to reach out to you.

Are you a member of a group and need training? Please contact us. We will arrange to meet with your group to provide training and Narcan kits.

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 can block 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.
