Door County to participate in NARCAN program

You will have more access to the materials needed to possibly save you or a loved one’s life during an episode of substance abuse. Door County Public Health announced on Monday it would be participating in the Wisconsin NARCAN Direct Program. As a part of the program, the department will be able to distribute free NARCAN kits that will include naloxone, the drug known as NARCAN that is used to reverse the effect of an overdose from opioids such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine, fentanyl, and heroin. The kits will include two doses of the inter-nasal NARCAN, Fentanyl test strips, a CPR mask, and educational materials. In 2020, over 1,200 people died from opioid-related overdoses. In the same year, Door County had 15 suspected opioid-induced overdoses. You can contact the Door County Public Health Department to pick up your free NARCAN kit.
