Are you or a loved one struggling with an opioid addiction? Stop by one of our offices today to learn how to administer Narcan and receive free doses of Narcan Nasal Spray to stop a potential overdose.
When someone introduces dangerous levels of opioids into the body, the receptors in the brain become overloaded and can cause the body to stop sending the necessary signals to continue breathing on its own. A person suffering from an overdose will cease supplying the body with adequate oxygen levels, slip into coma, and without proper intervention may eventually die. Learning the signs of an overdose and how to administer Narcan can reverse the effects and rescue a life.
At every Inspiration Health Addiction Treatment Center Location, NARCAN® Nasal Spray (Naloxone) is available for free to anyone who wants to learn how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose emergency. We will teach you the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose, and how to use NARCAN® Nasal Spray to potentially save a life while waiting for emergency services to arrive.
NARCAN® is a potentially lifesaving medication designed to help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose in minutes. Since most opioid overdoses occur in the home and are most often witnessed, having a NARCAN® rescue kit nearby can make all the difference. The active ingredient in NARCAN® is naloxone. Naloxone is an opioid antagonist which binds to opioid receptors and can reverse and block the effects of other opioids, such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone.
Inspiration Health works with all major insurance companies in the state of Virginia including UnitedHealthcare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Anthem
