🧯OTC Narcan: The new fire extinguisher

School districts are responding to the opioid crisis (which includes fentanyl) by stocking Narcan on school campuses.

Why it matters: Narcan is an easy-to-use, fast-acting treatment that can revive someone after opioid poisoning.

  • Now available over-the-counter without a prescription at your local pharmacy.

🙏  Quick thinking staff  at a Carrollton middle school used Narcan to revive a student earlier this month.

🥊 Reality check: Most fentanyl related deaths are the result of an accidental overdose.

  • Due to lethal doses being hidden in counterfeit Percoset, Xanax or Adderall being sold via social media.
