Harm Reduction

Harm Reduction is a public health approach that aims to reduce the negative impacts of drug use and policies through various programs, services, and resources. The primary goal of harm reduction is prevention, save lives, and protect the health of both those who use drugs and their communities


Naloxone (Narcan) is used for the emergency treatment of known or suspected overdoses. This means that it attaches to opioid receptors and reverses and blocks the effects of other opioids. Naloxone can quickly restore normal breathing to a person if their breathing has slowed or stopped because of an opioid overdose.

Naloxone Training

Are you prepared if you encounter a suspected overdose? We host quarterly trainings throughout the year. If you are interested in participating, please visit the upcoming events tab or contact us directly to find out when our next training is scheduled. Following the trainings, you will receive your own box of Narcan Nasal Spray to keep with you whenever you may need it.
