High schools across the country are able to stock themselves with Narcan - for free.

Adapt Pharma and Smith Medical Partners announced Thursday that they're offering free Narcan to every high school in the United States.

Narcan is the first and only FDA approved naloxone nasal spray for emergency treatment of opioid, fentanyl, and heroin related overdoses.

"Opioid abuse and overdose is a national epidemic. A 2013 national survey on drug use and health showed that there were 2.2 million adolescents aged 12 to 17 who were current illicit drug users," according to the press release.

For questions regarding NARCAN® distribution, please call 1-844-4NARCAN® (462-7226).
