In the event of a suspected opioid overdose, 911 should be called immediately to get emergency help. While waiting for help to arrive, knowing how to use NARCAN - an opioid reversal drug, can save someone’s life.
In this video, the Clinton Foundation’s Megan Affrunti, Director of Substance Use Disorders & Recovery, shares an important instructional on how you can act quickly to administer NARCAN.
Remember, calling 911 is always the first course of action and administering NARCAN is not a substitute for getting the person emergency medical help.
Saving someone from an opioid overdose can be their first step to long-term recovery. For more information on recovery resources near you call the National Helpline: 1-800-662-HELP
