We, along with Appleseed Mental Health Center, the Ashland County Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (ACCADA), and local pharmacies serve as local Project DAWN sites and can distribute Narcan. Anyone from Ashland County can access Project DAWN’s confidential and free services through us or the other local Project DAWN sites during regular business hours, without an appointment. 

Narcan can also reverse the effects of Fentanyl, which is a highly potent and deadly synthetic opioid that can cause overdose with just one use. According to the Mental Health and Recovery Board of Ashland County, many street drugs are laced with fentanyl.
