Red Ribbon Week Education:
Naloxone is a medication that can reverse an opioid overdose. Naloxone can be purchased over the counter from most pharmacies and is covered by most insurance companies.

Naloxone:
- Only works on opioids. It has no effect on someone who has not taken opioids
- Cannot be used to get high and is not addictive
- Has a long safety history. Adverse side effects are rare.
- Can be easily and safely administered by laypersons.

We currently have a stock of FREE Naloxone overdose kits available for those who can't afford to purchase one on their own. Please contact us at info@cccmedscoalition.org to make arrangements to receive one.
