13 Appalachian states host “Appalachian Save A Life Day”

Appalachian Save a Life Day

Over 300 free naloxone events will be held in 13 Appalachian states for the first ever “Appalachian Save A Life Day” on September 14, 2023.

The 13 states that are participating are West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, New York, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. The Appalachian Regional Commission recognizes all of these states as a part of the Appalachian region.

The medication naloxone works to reverse opioid overdoses with no adverse side effects, and one common brand is Narcan, an easy-to-use nasal spray.
