CVS to offer Heroin Antidote in its Ohio Stores

CVS pharmacy officials, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and the White House national drug policy director will discuss Monday during a community forum at the University of Toledo how CVS stores will begin carrying naloxone, also known as Narcan.

The antidote has becoming increasingly available to the public in recent months as Ohio’s heroin and opiate epidemic continues unabated. The drug is administered as an inhaler or with an injection and can reverse the breath suppression effects of opioids.

Ohio Department of Public Safety records show that naloxone was administered nearly 13,000 times around the state last year.
