Tonight is a Narcan (naloxone) information evening at Holy Cross Church. Narcan is a prescription drug which reverses the effects of opioid overdose. It has now been manufactured in a nasal spray preparation and through the intervention of lawmakers and the Surgeon General of the United States is available for purchase at pharmacies who will issue the drug to the purchaser.
Tonight's session is a joint effort of Holy Cross Church and the Rumson Police Department. The background of the opioid problem in New Jersey and the use of Narcan will be covered. Participants will know how to administer Narcan and learn how to obtain it. Limited supply of Narcan will be available for a donation to the church.
