In-Person Narcan Training

October 25, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Narcan Training and NJ Naloxone Distribution
In partnership with The New Jersey Department of Human Services, MCLS is participating in New Jersey’s Naloxone Distribution Program – designed to ensure communities across Mercer County impacted by the opioid epidemic have access to low-barrier Naloxone (Narcan).

“Specifically, Naloxone is used in opioid overdoses to counteract life-threatening depression of the central nervous system and respiratory system, allowing an overdose victim to breathe normally. Naloxone is a nonscheduled (i.e., non-addictive), prescription medication. Naloxone only works if a person has opioids in their system; the medication has no effect if opioids are absent.”

Opioid Overdose Basics

Each of the nine MCLS branches has kits available for distribution. No prescription is needed to access Narcan from the MCLS branches. A kit includes a supply of Naloxone with instructions, as well as educational information and resources.

Under the Good Samaritan Law, a person calling in good faith in the event of an opioid related overdose is immune from arrest, charges, and prosecution. Learn more at https://nextdistro.org/policies
