In partnership with Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark District Health Unit, CRCHC is offering The Revive Program. The program provides free Naloxone kits to eligible community members to help save the lives of people in an overdose situation.
Naloxone kits can be provided to anyone that:
- Is currently using opioids
- Have a history of opioid dependency or,
- Is a family member or friend of someone who uses opioids
What is Naloxone?
Naloxone (Narcan) is a drug that reverses an opioid overdose. Naloxone doesn’t stay in the body very long and a person can overdose again so it is very important to call 911 for all overdoses.
Where Can I Get a Naloxone Kit?
Both clinic locations in Westport and Portland, as well as Guthrie House in Elgin have trained professionals who are able to provide you with a kit and the training on how to use it.
