What is Narcan?

Naloxone (brand name Narcan) is a life-saving FDA-approved medication that is used to reverse the effects of overdoses from opioids such as heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone, and morphine.

Naloxone can be administered two ways: through injections (like a shot) or via nasal spray. 

To learn more about how naloxone saves lives, go to the CDC’s naloxone page or read the National Harm Reduction Coalition’s opioid overdose guide.
