The Old Stone Church is committed to helping to fight the opioid epidemic that is sweeping our country. We try to help through several avenues:
- NARCAN/Naloxone Training
- Counseling for individuals and families affected by opioid use
- Grief/Support groups for those who have lost a loved one to drug/suicide deaths
- Community Education/Awareness
NARCAN is the brand name for the drug Naloxone: a drug that counteracts the effects the opioids in the system.
NARCAN/Naloxone is a drug that is administered via a nasal applicator if an overdose is suspected. The drug ONLY affects the opioid and has no impact on the victim if the person is experiencing impact from other drug or medical reasons.
NARCAN classes are offered at the church and can be set up for your group by contacting the Old Stone Church and speaking with the pastor. All contact information is confidential.
