Overdose Prevention

Learn how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose. Foundation for Recovery is proud to be a distribution site for the life-saving overdose antidote, naloxone (Narcan).

Save a life. Get your kit.

Everyone should carry an overdose rescue kit. Naloxone, commonly known as Narcan, is an opioid antagonist which aids in the reversal of an opioid overdose. The advocacy of harm reductionists, families, and people in recovery has led to the passage of Nevada’s Good Samaritan Law, allowing everyone the freedom to possess this life-saving medication.

Sign up for one of our next overdose prevention trainings or walk-in to one of our Recovery Community Centers anytime to learn how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose.

We have overdose rescue kits available to the public, at no cost, at any of our recovery community centers or via mail through us or our partners at Trac-B Exchange.

Person-Directed Recovery

Person-centered recovery is directed, as much as possible by the person – including decisions about who should be included in the process.  The planning identifies just a few small, but meaningful, short-term changes that the individual can focus on helping to reduce some of the barriers or challenges moving forward.  Person centered care should be central to all recovery frameworks.
