Free overdose antidotes available to the public

Heritage Health is working to prevent people from dying from drug overdoses.

The nonprofit Community Health Center is offering free Narcan kits to the public at its Restored Paths Coeur d’Alene and St. Maries clinics. Heritage Health received a grant from the Idaho Office of Drug Policy last fall to purchase 169 Narcan kits for North Idaho residents.

Today, it has roughly 100 left.

“At least one life has been saved so far,” said Jenn Romero, Heritage Health’s director of Restored Paths. “You can come in, get a brief training and then take home a kit. They’re for people who are at risk of overdosing and for their family members too. You don’t have to be struggling with addiction to get one of these lifesaving kits.”
