TENNESSEE OVERDOSE PREVENTION
EDUCATORS & PARENTS
Fatal overdoses in Tennessee have increased in recent years and is linked to an upsurge in prescription drug abuse and availability. We want to provide the resources to help inform parents and educators, as well as teens in our community about Tennessee's Naloxone and Good Samaritan Laws that makes Narcan, the antidote for opioid overdose, available and gives immunity to those reporting and experencing possible overdose from alcohol or other drugs.
Our message is simple: Don't Run–Call 911!
Please contact us if you would like more information. We will provide educational materials, as well as a representative to speak at your event, meeting or gathering.

We are eager to work with companies and other organizations in the mission to educate and inform others about Tennessee's Medical Amnesty Law.
