Project DAWN

Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided with Naloxone) is a community based Naloxone education program funded through the Ohio Department of Health.

Naloxone, commonly referred to as Narcan, is a life-saving medication used to reverse an opioid overdose. When Naloxone is administered it blocks the effects of opioids on the brain, which reverses the toxic effects of an overdose and restores breathing within a matter of minutes.

Naloxone or Narcan is a very safe and effective medication. When administered to someone dependent on opioids, it will produce withdrawal like symptoms. These symptoms are uncomfortable, but not life threatening. If given to someone not experiencing and opioid overdose, it poses no harm and has no addictive properties. Narcan will only work on an opioid overdose and no effect on non-opioid overdoses.
