FREE Naloxone Kits for Overdoses
NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
Naloxone is a medication that quickly reverses the effects of an overdose from opioids such as heroin, methadone, fentanyl and morphine. It is often given as an injection into a muscle.
Free, take-home naloxone kits are available from the Kitselas community health nurse. The Community Nurse can deliver the kit or meet members in private, and give a brief teaching session of how the kits work.
