You Can Recover Drive-Through Resource Event
March 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Frontier Health’s Virtual COVID Crisis Team is holding a Narcan drive-through resource event. While our region is facing a pandemic, it is also suffering from an opioid crisis, with opioid overdose deaths quickly becoming one of the leading causes of accidental deaths in the United States. Narcan, also known as Naloxone is a fast-acting remedy for an opioid overdose and works on any type of opioid, including synthetic opioids such as heroin and fentanyl.
The Virtual COVID Crisis Team will have 100 Narcan/Covid-19 Resource bags to give out to any member of the community at our Turning Point location located at 208 E. Unaka Ave., Johnson City, TN. Each bag will contain 1 Narcan nasal spray, information and training regarding how to properly administer the Narcan spray, as well as COVID-19 resource materials. These will be given out for free on a first-come basis while supplies last. While Narcan is a potentially life-saving first step toward recovery, the individual will likely need further medical treatment and addiction care.
