HEAL provides free training and distribution of
Naloxone, a life-saving drug to reverse opioid overdoses.
If you are a family member or friend of a person who uses
opiods or if you are using yourself, you are eligible to
receive free Naloxone at our Bangor and Ellsworth office
locations. Each kit includes two vials of Naloxone
intramuscular medication and is accompanied by a 15 minute training by a member of our staff so you can prepare yourself with knowledge and tools that could save a life!
For more information about overdose risk factors and how to receive Naloxone, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
