Saving Lives Together.
Did you know that most opioid overdoses occur in people’s homes? Having a NARCAN® rescue kit nearby can save someone’s life.  At Terros Health, our instructors know that NARCAN® is a potentially lifesaving medication designed to help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose in minutes.

What is NARCAN®?
NARCAN® is a medication that can quickly reverse an overdose from either prescribed painkillers or illicit forms of opioids such as heroin and fentanyl.  NARCAN® is a nasal spray.

NARCAN® does not affect someone who does not have opioids in their system, and it is not a treatment for opioid addiction. It can be effective with both prescribed painkillers, such as oxycodone (OxyContin®) and hydrocodone (Vicodin®), as well as illicit opioids like heroin and fentanyl.

NARCAN® Nasal Spray is an FDA-approved nasal formulation of naloxone to treat known or suspected opioid overdose. NARCAN® Nasal Spray is needle-free and ready to use.

Why do I need NARCAN® in my home?

If you have a prescription for opioid medication in your home, it is a good idea to have NARCAN® on hand as a safety measure. Trained individuals can safely administer NARCAN® to anyone experiencing an opioid overdose, including young children and infants.

Who should carry NARCAN®?

Terros Health recommends that everyone should have NARCAN® readily available. However, the following people are at higher risk of suffering from an opioid overdose and are especially encouraged to carry NARCAN®:

–Persons in active addiction and their family and friends

–Persons recently released from a residential treatment facility

–Persons with opioid addiction who were recently released from jail or prison

–Persons taking high dosage opioids for pain management

When should I use NARCAN®?

It is strongly recommended that NARCAN® be administered to any person who shows signs of an opioid overdose. NARCAN® can and should be used whenever an opioid overdose is suspected. If the person is not overdosing on opioids or overdosing at all, NARCAN® is still safe to use and will not affect the person. When in doubt, don’t be afraid to use it if overdose signs are present.

The DEA has encountered street drugs like fake pills, cocaine, heroin, etc., laced with fentanyl in recent years. Therefore, there is a possibility the person has opioids in their system, regardless of what substance the person ingested. Because of the prevalence of fentanyl in various drugs, NARCAN® should be used on anyone overdosing from any drug(s). As fentanyl is a highly potent opioid, 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, overdoses can happen quickly, and it’s essential to call 911 and administer NARCAN® as promptly in the overdose episode as possible.
