Opioids: NARCAN® Direct Program

The NARCAN® Direct Program provides NARCAN® at no cost to community agencies. These organizations distribute the NARCAN® they receive to people at risk for an opioid overdose and people who may witness an opioid overdose. NARCAN® is the nasal spray formulation of naloxone, a drug used to reverse opioid overdoses.

Train-the-trainer course schedule​​

NARCAN® Direct Program agencies are required to have at least one staff member attend a DHS sponsored naloxone train-the-trainer course and use the curriculum provided to train others on how to administer naloxone.

All of these courses will be presented virtually using Zoom.
