We are humbled to announce that with the help of Eden Laikin and Linda Mangano, the Garrett L Kassler Memorial Fund is now New York State Certified as an Overdose Responder Program.
We will be certified in training civilians in how to administer Narcan.
Narcan is a nasal spray and is the first and only FDA-approved nasal form of naloxone for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose. NARCAN® Nasal Spray counteracts the life-threatening effects of opioid overdose.
“Narcan Nasal Spray is indicated for the emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose, as manifested by respiratory and/or central nervous system depression. Narcan Nasal Spray is intended for immediate administration as emergency therapy in settings where opioids may be present.”
For more information, please get in touch! Our first Narcan Training Event is in the planning stages. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
