Monroe County Health Department Project DAWN Program

WHAT IS PROJECT DAWN?

Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided With Naloxone) is a naloxone distribution program, which is grant-funded through the Ohio Department of Health. Narcan© is a brand of naloxone medication that can be used to quickly reverse an overdose caused by an opioid drug.

This program educates individuals and organizations in the community, those at risk of overdose, as well as family and friends of opioid users on how to recognize an overdose and respond appropriately.
