When a child is in crisis, we as a community need to be there for them and their families to show support in any way we can. Zvi Gluck and the staff of Amudim are taking the lead in making sure that children and families who have already suffered so much feel that their cries are being heard.- Rabbi Yisroel Grossberg, Principal of Bnot Chaya Academy

what is narcan ?

Naloxone, also known as Narcan, is an opioid antidote that temporarily reverses the effects of an opioid overdose,  giving victims greater ability to get to a hospital and receive lifesaving treatment. It has no known side effects and only works on opioids, such as painkillers or heroin. Narcan's properties as an antidote do not work with any other drugs including cocaine or benzodiazepine medications, also known as benzos.

Narcan can be administered by anyone who has taken the simple training course created by the New York State Department of Health. More than 20,000 Americans died of opioid overdoses in 2015, a number that continues to increase each year.
