FRC offering Narcan kits
The Family Recovery Center offers Naloxone (Narcan), a medication that can block the effects of opioids and reverse an overdose. Free Narcan kits are distributed from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday at their Lisbon office, 964 N. Market St. Kits are also distributed via their mail order program. The request form can be found on both the FRC Facebook page and website at www.familyrecovery.org. The anonymous form will take no more than 5 to 7 minutes with a training video that is 16 minutes in length. Businesses that would like to keep naloxone on hand in case of an emergency can call the agency to arrange on-site training. Those who have questions about usage of the kit or need additional counseling should contact the FRC at 330-424-1468.
