Narcan / Naloxone Kits
Narcan, or naloxone, works by binding to the same opioid receptors in the brain as drugs like heroin, fentanyl, or prescription opioids. By doing so, it temporarily blocks the opioids' effects, particularly the slowing of breathing, which is the primary cause of opioid overdose fatalities. Having Narcan readily available is crucial for people with family members or friends who are active opioid users.,
Fentanyl Test Strip Kits
Fentanyl test strips are a harm reduction tool used to detect the presence of fentanyl, a potent synthetic opioid, in virtually any substance. They work by dipping a small portion of the drug into a solution containing the test strip. If fentanyl is present, the strip will indicate a positive result. This is critical because fentanyl is often mixed into other drugs, and even a tiny amount can lead to a lethal overdose. By using these test strips, users can make informed decisions about their drug use and potentially avoid substances laced with fentanyl, reducing the risk of accidental overdoses.

The presence of experienced moderators ensures that discussions align with Dr. Santana's therapeutic principles and insights. These groups facilitate open dialogue, constructive feedback, and a sense of unity among participants, creating a supportive environment where each member can draw strength and encouragement from their peers.
