Did you know we’re a Naloxone Injection Kit distribution site?
What is Naloxone?
Naloxone is a drug used to temporarily reverse an opioid overdose. Naloxone must be given right away and followed up by emergency medical care.
How can I get a kit?
If you, or someone you know, might need access to a kit, you can pick one up from us and we’ll show you how to use it. Training is not difficult and should only take 5 minutes to go over with you. You do not need to provide your name, a prescription or a reason for needing one. Kits are absolutely free.
Please call ahead to our front desk at 780-453-3757 so we can make sure a qualified staff member is available to train you.
