What to Know about Narcan
Naloxone, also know by the brand name Narcan, is a drug used to prevent opioid overdoses. It is completely legal for anyone to carry and administer in Colorado. It can be found ad syringe access programs, health departments and some community clinics. You can also get it at participating pharmacies for a low or no co-pay. It's important to note that Naloxone only works for opioid overdoses (i.e., heroin, morphine, fentanyl, etc.) Check out this link to see a map of places to get Narcan.
