DENVER (CBS4) – Denver residents can get free Naloxone and fentanyl testing strips from the Department of Public Health and Environment shipped to their homes. Orders have been backlogged due to an increase of demand.

The city has since restocked, and medicine is shipping out as the fentanyl crisis grows in Colorado.

Naloxone, also known as Narcan, is a lifesaving medication that works to reverse drug overdoses caused by opiates. Thousands of Coloradans die each year from opioid overdoses.
The city prioritizes harm reduction strategies to prevent these deaths. Thousands of residents recently learned they can help prevent them, too.
