Narcan Recovery Kits Available at Springfield Recovery Community Center

Springfield and Greene County have been facing a significant increase in drug overdoses due to a batch of tainted heroin in the region. As a result, one local organization is providing life-saving kits for those who may be in the lives of those battling addiction.

Springfield Recovery Community Center is offering Narcan recovery kits and will train residents on how to use them in emergency situations. The kits are inside a tote bag that you can keep in your residence or in your vehicle for emergency situations.

The use of Narcan could be life-saving for someone experiencing an overdose in the event first responders may be delayed reaching the scene.

SRCC is located at 1925 East Bennett Suite J, Springfield. The organization is also in need of financial donations to continue their operations. You can obtain more information on SRCC on their Facebook page.
