Free Narcan now available through Emily’s Hope

From 2020 to 2022, 219 people died from a drug overdose in South Dakota; 33% of those deaths were caused by fentanyl. Today, on National Fentanyl Awareness Day, one organization is taking steps to prevent more deaths by overdose in the state.

Emily’s Hope, a non-profit helping remove the stigma of substance use and addiction, has installed a Narcan dispenser box inside the Jones421 building in Downtown Sioux Falls. The boxes are free to take.
