Naloxone (trade name Narcan) can restore breathing in the event of a fentanyl or other opioid overdose. Naloxone is a medication that temporarily reverses the effects of an overdose from opioids such as heroin, methadone, fentanyl and morphine. Free Take Home Naloxone Kits are available to the public in communities across the Province. Kits are for individuals at high risk of overdose (current or previous opioid users) and their friends/family, to administer if overdose occurs.
Contact the HealthLine (call 811) or any Mental Health and Addictions office to access a kit. Instructions on how to use the kit will be provided.
