Free Narcan drive-thru event held


In an effort to help fight the opioid epidemic, the Clearfield Jefferson Drug & Alcohol Commission and the Medicine Shoppe will be hosting a free Narcan drive-thru event on June 4 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the pharmacy’s parking lot located at 30 W. Park Ave. in DuBois.

“Individuals 18 years of age or older can simply drive up to the table located in the parking lot of the Medicine Shoppe in DuBois, show their ID for proof of age, and receive a bag with the included items,” said CJDAC Prevention Supervisor Karen Orner.

“Those driving up will be handed a bag containing a dose of Narcan and instructions on how to administer the Narcan,” she said.

Additionally, Orner said everyone participating will receive a medication box with a combination lock. They will also receive a Deterra medication deactivation kit and a Dispose Rx medication deactivation pouch.
