Muskegon Overdose Prevention

The opioid overdose epidemic is killing thousands of people, and hundreds have lost their lives to accidental overdose in the Muskegon area. However, every opioid overdose fatality is preventable. Naloxone (also known as Narcan®) is a prescription medication that can safely and effectively rescue a friend, family member, or community member from an opioid overdose. This program has been very successful in the Grand Rapids area with over 1,000 people trained and resulting in over 200 lives saved.
