Narcan Overdose Prevention Community Forum

You can save the life of a loved one from overdose!

 

Every day, at least one Long Islander dies from an opiate overdose. And those are only the ones we know of – the ones directly caused by heroin or prescription painkillers such as Percoset or Oxycodone. If you don’t think it can happen to someone you care about, please think again. Overdoses can happen to anyone.

 

Legislator Howard J. Kopel and County Executive Ed Mangano are sponsoring this event to teach residents what to do in case of an overdose and to help train residents how to administer the life-saving, overdose-reversal agent called Naloxone, or “NARCAN.” NARCAN is the antidote to an opioid overdose and attendees will receive a free kit.
