Two Lincoln Pharmacies To Give Out Free Narcan

Two Lincoln pharmacies will soon help in the fight against opioid abuse. The Nebraska Pharmacist Association says Kohl's and the Hyvee Pharmacy are going to provide free Narcan, a medication used to help stop opioid overdoses. The N-P-A says the pharmacies are participating in a three-month pilot program, but the association hopes to make it statewide. Vice President Marcia Mueting tells K-O-L-N the program will help save several lives.
