Missouri Overdose Rescue and Education (MORE) Project
To access the Overdose Education and Naloxone Administration Training for First Responders please click on the red button below.
The primary goal of the Missouri Overdose Rescue and Education (MORE) project is to reduce opioid-involved deaths in Missouri through training, education, and distribution of naloxone to first responders in rural regions of the state. The State of Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) will lead the project partnering with Missouri Heroin Overdose Prevention and Education (MO-HOPE) project, Missouri Institute of Mental Health (MIMH), and the State of Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH).
For more information regarding MORE please contact Karen Wallace, MORE Project Coordinator at (573) 751-6839 or Karen.Wallace@health.mo.gov.

Access to no cost Narcan for schools, colleges and universities, YMCAs and public libraries.
Missouri Public Schools may choose to stock naloxone for use in emergencies. Districts are encouraged to develop procedures for stocking and administration of an anti-opioid and include this information in their school policies. Through an educational grant, Emergent Devices (formerly known as Adapt Pharma) helped support the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) to fund educational efforts to increase awareness of opioid-related risks among students, educators, families and communities. As part of these efforts, the NASN developed the Naloxone in Schools Toolkit. This may be helpful when implementing a Naloxone Program into your school.
NARCAN® Nasal Spray (naloxone HCL) is an FDA-approved nasal form of naloxone for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose. Emergent Devicess, the manufacturer of NARCAN®, provides every high school throughout the country access to 2 cartons of Nasal Spray (4 doses) and up to 4 cartons (8 doses) for Title IV, degree-granting, 2- and 4-year institutions at no cost.
