St. Tammany Parish Government has received an additional 3,000 Narcan nasal spray kits to be provided free of charge to St. Tammany Parish citizens.
The Narcan kits were acquired through the Department of Justice’s Comprehensive Opioid and Substance Abuse Site-based program, which provided federal funding to the Parish.
“Narcan has saved lives in St. Tammany Parish,” said Parish President Mike Cooper. “I am proud of the hard work of our employees, who not only helped bring our tax dollars back to St. Tammany, but for ensuring that these critical opioid overdose treatments are readily available to potentially save the lives of our neighbors and loved ones.”
Following several requests from various local agencies, the Narcan kits, each containing two (2) doses of 4mg nasal spray, will be distributed to the Fire Districts, Coroner’s Office and any citizen at no cost. To obtain a kit, please visit any Florida Parishes Human Services Authority location.
In 2021, St. Tammany Parish Government acquired nearly 2,000 Narcan spray kits, which were distributed by local agencies in conjunction with the Save a Life – Carry Narcan campaign.
