Naloxone, also known as Narcan, is an opioid blocker that reverses the effects of opioids. It can reverse an overdose caused by an opioid for approximately 30-90 minutes, which means it is still important to call 9-1-1. Community members can obtain a free naloxone kit, after a brief training, at Clermont Recovery Center (1088 Wasserman Way, Batavia, OH 45103). Call 513-735-8100 for an appointment. Naloxone is also available at most pharmacies without a prescription.
