EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The city of Evansville now has two opioid rescue kits installed that are available to the public.
The boxes include several doses of Narcan and information on how to use it.
Narcan is a life-saving antidote for a person experiencing an opioid overdose.
Evansville Recovery Alliance partnered with Overdose Lifeline of Indianapolis to put these kits outside in two public locations.
The two boxes are located at 1035 North Fourth Street and 30 East Virginia Street.
“There are a lot of people prescribed opioids for pain management. They’re also recommended to carry Narcan just in case they accidentally take too many of their prescribed pills, or in case they mix that with alcohol,” said Lavender Timmons, director of Evansville Recovery Alliance.
