Naloxone, commonly known as Narcan, is a medication that, when used correctly, can rapidly reverse an opioid overdose.
OCHN funds the Alliance of Coalitions for Healthy Communities (ACHC) to provide OEND training and distribute Naloxone to attendees who are family members, friends, or other persons that are able to assist an individual who is at risk of experiencing an opioid-related overdose. Narcan is also provided to local law enforcement and first responders.
