Northern Light will make naloxone available to the public for free

By  | 

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Nearly 2,300 Mainers died from an opioid related overdose between 2010 and 2018.

Pharmacists at five locations in Bangor, Portland and Brewer are trained in using the kits, and will be able to train anyone how to administer it.

Health officials say you can get a kit even if it's not for them but for a loved one or friend.

They just want to get it out where it can do the most good.

To obtain a naloxone kit, anyone can drop by one of these pharmacy locations and speak to a pharmacist.
