You can save the life of a loved one from overdose!

Every day, at least one Long Islander dies from an opiate overdose. And those are only the ones we know of – the ones directly caused by heroin or prescription painkillers such as Percoset or Oxycodone. If you don’t think it can happen to someone you care about, please think again. Overdoses can happen to anyone.

To make this epidemic even worse, other deadly drugs called Fentanyl and Carfentanil, which are much stronger than heroin, have entered Nassau County and are having devastating effects on addicts. These synthetic opioids can be fatal if inhaled or absorbed into the skin and dealers are mixing them in with heroin and cocaine to amplify their potency

Legislator Vincent Muscarella is sponsoring this event to teach residents what to do in case of an overdose and to help train them how to administer the life-saving, overdose-reversal agent called Naloxone, or “NARCAN.” NARCAN is the antidote to an opioid overdose and all attendees will receive a free kit.

SEATING IS LIMITED AND RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED

To reserve your seat and free NARCAN kit, please contact Legislator Muscarella’s office:
516-571-6208 - vmuscarella@nassaucountyny.gov
