Naloxone Can Save Lives
To help combat the affliction of opiate addiction and overdose, we promote the use of Naloxone (trade name Narcan®) and the use of a take-home Naloxone Kit.
Naloxone is an antidote for opiate overdose and if administered in time, it can save lives. Naloxone nasal spray works by blocking opioid drugs, such as heroin and methadone, from attaching to opioid receptors in the brain.
Naloxone is often administered by authorized medical personnel and first responders. However, it can also saves lives when administered by trained family and friends.
We have partnered with Public Health-Seattle King County and the University of Washington Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute to provide Take Home Naloxone Kits to anyone who needs it.

These are short, precise and easy to watch instructional videos presented by our Clinical Pharmacist: Allyson Eichner, PharmD:
