    Rocklin, Placer

In case of a medical emergency call 911 immediately. The Placer-Nevada Rx Drug Safety Coalition is a source of naloxone. Naloxone is a medication used to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It can reverse and block the effects of opioids such as such as heroin, fentanyl, morphine, codeine, and oxycodone. Administered when a patient is showing signs of opioid overdose, naloxone’s overdose reversal is a temporary treatment and its effects do not last long. So call 911 immediately after administering/receiving naloxone (NARCAN is a brand of naloxone). Naloxone is easy to learn to administer and is an important drug safety resource. We can provide technical assistance for your organization to receive your own supply of NARCAN as well.
