What is Naloxone?
Naloxone is a medication approved by the FDA to rapidly reverse opioid overdose by binding to opioid receptors and blocking the drug's effect. This is typically a nasal spray. Naloxone is a temporary treatment and its effects do not last long. Therefore, it is critical to obtain further medical attention as soon as possible after administering/receiving naloxone.
Levittown Community Action Coalition, in partnership with YES Community Counseling Center, provides free Naloxone trainings and kits on a need-by-need basis. If you or your organization would like a training, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Hannah Moore at 516-719-0313 ext 223.
