Purpose: Narcan saves lives and needle exchange reduces harm:
The goal of the Narcan Training is to keep those who suffer from Substance Use Disorder alive and reduce harm as much as possible until those suffering can get effective treatment and enter recovery.
Our purpose is to serve our communities by providing training in order to spread awareness of Narcan/Naloxone; ensure that Narcan/Naloxone is in the hands of all first responders throughout North Carolina; encourage schools to have Narcan/Naloxone on hand; and help those who are most at risk of overdose or contracting HIV or Hepatitis C by directing them to Narcan/Naloxone distributors and needle exchange programs throughout the state.
