Our team members have a vested interest in providing educational information to a sometimes unsuspecting or unaware community. We accomplish this in various ways, collaborating with the local school districts and Chester County drug programs to presenting drug awareness information during:

• Town Hall Meetings 
• Community Events
• Parent Support Groups
• Art Programs for at-risk elementary students
• Educational Activities for intermediate and middle school students
• Addiction Awareness & Education Assemblies for high school students
• Narcan Training & Distribution at special events

And, we simply identify any areas where we can make a difference.
We welcome the community’s thoughts and insights about the heroin

problem and will work with you toward a solution.

 

Invite us to your events!

 Our team members are trained by

Good Fellowship Ambulance in partnership with

Chester County Department of Drug and Alcohol Services

in the use of Naloxone, access to community resources and ability to assist in obtaining Narcan

Naloxone was provided by the Department of Drug and Alcohol to Kacie’s Cause for community distribution. As you may or may not be aware, Naloxone does have a shelf life of about two years. The Naloxone distributed over the last months at events is reaching its expiration date soon.

We recommend that you replace your naloxone by the expiration date on the package. Naloxone is not unsafe to use past the expiration date, but the effectiveness is no longer guaranteed. In an emergency situation where the only available naloxone is expired, that naloxone should still be used because even a partially effective medication is better than nothing.
