• Overdose and Naloxone

    A Safe and Effective Medicine

    Naloxone, also known by the brand name Narcan®, is a safe and effective medication that can reverse the effects of opioid overdose. It is most often injected into a person experiencing an overdose. It attaches to the same parts of the brain that receive heroin and other opioids, and it blocks the opioids for 30-90 minutes to reverse the respiratory depression that would otherwise lead to death from overdose.
