Opioid Overdose Prevention

March 15, 2024

Tompkins County Whole Health recently alerted the community of opioid overdose deaths and the results of local drug testing, which showed nearly all street drugs were contaminated with Fentanyl and/or Xylazine. Familiarize yourself with overdose prevention resources, as many opioid-related deaths are preventable. Naloxone spray (Narcan) is available in Cornell Health’s self-care vending machine, and both fentanyl xylazine testing strips are available in pharmacies, including Cornell Health. Services for alcohol abuse or other drug use are also available on campus.
