Wheeler and its on-site partner, Genoa Healthcare, will provide information about Naloxone (NARCAN), a life saving medication used to reverse overdoses, and medication-assisted treatment for addiction at a community outreach event on Wednesday, September 23. A limited supply of Naloxene kits will be available, at no charge, for individuals who are eligible and do not have access to the life-saving medication, made possible by a grant from the American Savings Foundation. &
