About the Naloxone Hero Project
The Arkansas Naloxone Bank was established in 2022 by the Arkansas Opioid Recovery Partnership (ARORP). Organizations known as Naloxone Community Heroes apply for credits at the Naloxone Bank in order to obtain naloxone for distribution to families and other underprivileged groups for treatment. The Heroes conduct naloxone training and offer a dose of naloxone free of charge. Being an associate of the Naloxone Community Hero Project, SOZO is honored to collaborate with the ARORP. We conduct training for Saline and Garland County residents.
Naloxone is a crisis-handling medication that has the power to reverse the effects of opioid overdose thereby saving lives. From overdose reversal and reducing the mortality rate to lowering the associated stigma and supporting comprehensive treatment plans, naloxone awareness campaigns can make a significant impact on the lives of people. Raising awareness of naloxone is part of larger public health efforts to decrease overdose deaths, with a focus on prevention and education as essential elements of public health tactics.
Being aware of naloxone contributes to minimizing the stigma attached to opioid use disorder. It advances a more sympathetic view of addiction as a treatable medical condition by advocating naloxone as a tool for life-saving. Be prepared and save lives with Naloxone awareness that turns crises into second chances. Join us if your organization is willing to receive the training or information about the Naloxone Community Hero Project.
