According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 47,000 people died from opioid overdoses in the United States in 2019. This epidemic affects communities across the country, including the Tampa Bay area.

This medication has been proven to be a critical tool in the fight against opioid overdoses and has the potential to make a significant impact in the Tampa Bay community.

By distributing Narcan, Action Plus is taking a proactive step to support the health and well-being of its community and to help save lives in the face of the opioid crisis.
