Overdose prevention services.
As a minority-owned, woman-owned nonprofit, our goal is to provide in-home and on-the-spot access to NARCAN® kits in every neighborhood across our region.
What is NARCAN (naloxone)?
NARCAN ALLOWS SOMEONE TO BREATHE. That’s it.
Naloxone, better known by the brand name NARCAN, is a medication that can reverse an opioid overdose and prevent death. This potentially lifesaving medication is free, available all over your neighborhood, and easy to use. The only effect it has on the body is the enabling of the lungs to breathe – which is vital in an overdose situation.
Where to find free NARCAN kits.
Narcan is free and readily available at pharmacies, community health centers, corner and liquor stores.
Be ready to take action.
NARCAN was developed to be used at home without the need of any medical training. WNY Mobile OPS offers free training on how to use NARCAN, so you can be ready at a moment’s notice.
Volunteer to make a difference.
Interested in volunteering or supporting WNY Mobile OPS? We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups no matter how much time you have available.
Call 911 in case of an emergency, especially a possible overdose.
New York State’s 911 Good Samaritan Law will prevent you from being arrested if you’re having a drug-related emergency or are witnessing someone overdose.
