What is Naloxone?

Naloxone is a life-saving medication (agonist) that can reverse an overdose from opioids, including heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioid medications. Given as a nasal spray, naloxone is safe and easy to use.

At A Way Forward, we receive regular shipments of NARCAN which is available to clients for free and we offer free NARCAN training as well.
