Narcan Information

What is NARCAN® (naloxone HCl) Nasal Spray?

NARCAN® Nasal Spray is to be given right away and does not take the place of emergency medical care. Get emergency medical help right away after giving the first dose of NARCAN® Nasal Spray, even if the person wakes up. 

In Bristol County, NARCAN can be obtained through most pharmacies and treatment facilities. NARCAN training can be secured through many treatment facilities and through FR-CARA grant coordinators.
