PALM COAST, Fla. — For two hours on Friday, people can walk or drive up to receive free doses of a drug designed to help reduce overdose deaths.
From 4 to 6 p.m., Flagler Open Arms Recovery Services and AdventHealth Palm Coast will be passing out free Narcan and Narcan educational information to the public.
Organizers said Flagler OARS is able to provide naloxone through a grant from the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) Overdose Prevention Program (OPP).
“If there are prescription opioids in your home, Narcan Nasal Spray should be there, too,” said Deborah McNabb, AdventHealth’s director of community benefit, in a statement.
Organizers said Narcan is used to temporarily reverse the effects of opioid medicines and has no effect on people who are not taking opioid medicines.
The giveaway will take place in the AdventHealth Palm Coast emergency room parking lot, 60 Memorial Parkway, in Palm Coast. Click here for more information.
