The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for people to make healthier choices.

Do you or someone you know struggle with an addiction to heroin or opioid prescription medications (such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, morphine, and fantanyl)? Overdose with opioids is a significant danger that can cause death.
Naloxone is an inexpensive, fast-acting drug that when administered during an opioid overdose, blocks the effects of opiates on the brain and restores breathing within two to three minutes of administration. The health department has a limited supply of Naloxone nasal spray available to the public. For more information or to make an appointment to receive a Naloxone kit, call 435-657-3260.
