NALOXONE 

Naloxone reverses overdose! At MARS we believe that every patient should be educated on, and in posession of, the powerful life saving drug: Naloxone/ Narcan! 

 

During orientation patients will be trained on the importance of Naloxone and how to administer it intramuscularly. You can also get trained on your own here:

Once a patient completes orientation they have the option of receiving a Naloxone kit. Family and friends are encouraged to participate in the orientation.
