Free Narcan kits are available at Orange County Department of Health

Orange County Department of Health
Narcan is now available for free at the Orange County Department of Health.

The Orange County health department is distributing free Narcan kits. Narcan is a drug that can reverse opioid drug overdoses.

Narcan kits contain naloxone, the medication that can reverse an opioid overdose in minutes. The kits are now available in all 67 counties in Florida.

In Orange County, the kits can be picked up at the Department of Health’s central buildings, along with three off-site locations Monday through Friday.

To qualify, you must be at least 18 and either at high risk of drug overdose or someone who cares for a person with an addiction.

The kits come with two nasal sprays that can be administered by any bystander, including those without medical training.

More than 7,000 people died this year from overdoses in Florida.
