Narcan is now available for free in Taney and Stone Counties.  The drug temporarily reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.

Narcan is available there now because of a partnership between the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Community Distribution Program and local treatment and recovery support organizations, according to CoxHealth Branson.

The drug does not replace medical treatment for an overdose. If it is administered, 911 should be called immediately.

Last year, there were 1,094 fatal opioid-related overdoses in Missouri, and there were 1,132 opioid deaths in the state in 2018.
