In a sign of the times, the maker of Narcan – a treatment for opioid overdose – is expanding a program to offer the drug free at eligible schools and universities.

The drugmaker, Adapt Pharma has announced an expansion of its program offering free Narcan Nasal Spray – a community use naloxone – to U.S. high schools and eligible colleges and universities.

Narcan (naloxone hydrochloride) Nasal Spray is an opioid antagonist indicated for the emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose, as manifested by respiratory and/or central nervous system depression.

It is intended for immediate administration as emergency therapy in settings where opioids may be present. Narcan Nasal Spray is not a substitute for emergency medical care.

Adapt Pharma continues to offer first responders such as law enforcement and firefighters a 40% discount off wholesale pricing so these groups and nonprofit community-based organizations can purchase a box of two doses for $75.

Narcan Nasal Spray 4mg is the only FDA-approved, needle-free formulation of naloxone for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose.

It does not require assembly or any specialized medical training and is also the highest concentrated dose of intranasal naloxone currently available.
