What Is Naloxone?

Naloxone is a medication called an "opioid antagonist" used to counter the effects of opioid overdose, for example a heroin overdose. Naloxone only functions if a person has opioids in their system; the medication has no effect if opioids are absent.

NARCAN® Nasal Spray is to be given right away and does not take the place of emergency medical care. Get emergency medical help immediately after giving the first dose of NARCAN® Nasal Spray, even if the person wakes up because symptoms may return. Repeat doses may be necessary.

If your business or organization would like to host a training, please fill out our Training Request Form,  or contact FAN at 586-438-8500.

Henry Ford Health supports FAN’s mission to offer community-based, compassionate, best-practice/evidence-based services to people who have been affected by addiction—this includes individuals with SUD and their families—and to erase the stigma of addiction while instilling compassion and hope.

"If I had this training years ago I could have saved a life. Being in recovery puts [you] in proximity to many who have died as a result of opioid overdose.

 

Just over 13 years ago was my first experience as a 'kid' (27 years old) that I sponsored overdosed on methadone, obtained from the street. This was his fourth overdose, and they couldn't revive him that time. As I left the hospital I received a call from his sister saying they took him off the ventilator. Jeff was a dear friend. Many others who I've gotten to know (though not as deeply) have left us this way.

 

Naloxone saved my ex-wife on more than 3 occasions but without my intervention, since I was not trained and did not have access to the drug. Now I am empowered! Now I don't have to watch hopelessly and wait for EMS to arrive if it happens again. Thank you so much!"
