Let's Talk Nevada County
Let’s Talk Nevada County is a campaign to promote awareness of wellness strategies and resources and encourage conversations about how we’re feeling during times of stress. It was started during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The goal is to build resiliency within our community, and to remind everyone that self-care is critical, as is connection with our natural networks of support.  When we need more support than our friends and family are able to provide us, professional helping services are available too. It’s ok not to be ok all the time.

PLACER-NEVADA RX DRUG SAFETY COALITION - PNCMS

PLACER-NEVADA COUNTY MEDICAL SOCIETY #70007922


location_on D
  • 4220 Rocklin Rd, Suite 5
    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.

See a (non-exhaustive) list of locations for Placer-Nevada County Naloxone Access here: https://www.scmfoundation.org/Portals/0/Naloxone%20Near%20You%20April%202022.pdf
