  • Health Care District’s Clinics Offer Patients Free Grab-and-Go Narcan to Save Lives from an Overdose - To combat the rising number of overdose deaths this year in Palm Beach County, the C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics are offering free canisters of Narcan nasal spray without a prescription to adult patients at its network of clinics countywide. Patients and their families no longer need to ask for Narcan; they can grab it and take it on the go. The nasal spray is safe, easy to administer and has no side effects. The two-dose box of Narcan was first offered to patients receiving outpatient care for substance use disorders at the Health Care District’s Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Clinic in West Palm Beach. Within a few days, a clinic patient reported using the Narcan to save a man’s life.
