SUBJECT: MSTEPP / AZYP Partnership Naloxone availability
The Mohave Substance-Abuse Treatment, Education & Prevention Partnership (MSTEPP) and the Kingman Office of Arizona Youth Partnership (AZYP) are proud to announce a joint partnership that will help save lives in the region.
MSTEPP, operating under the Community Action and Response Effort (CARE) grant, provided by the Department of Justice, is working to increase community knowledge of Naloxone and it’s availability to our residents. As part of the new partnership, AZYP will serve as a distribution site for Naloxone which will be provided at no cost.
Naloxone is a reversal agent for opioid overdoses that has saved hundreds of lives in the State of Arizona.
