The Wolf administration later this month will give away free Naloxone at nearly 100 state and local health centers, including those in Western Pennsylvania, as part of an ongoing effort to reduce opioid overdoses.

Naloxone is used to reverse overdoses caused by opioids by blocking the effects of opioids on the brain.
