Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided with Naloxone) is an opioid overdose education and naloxone distribution (OEND) program.

Its purpose is to save lives by providing Naloxone to individuals and families of those who are at-risk for opioid overdose.

Cuyahoga County’s Project DAWN was launched on March 1, 2013.  YOU CAN GET A FREE KIT MAILED TO YOU. CLICK HERE.


Those who take part in the program learn about:

  • The risk factors for opioid overdose
  • Responding to an opioid overdose by calling 911
  • Giving rescue breaths
  • Administering nasal Naloxone

Participants are given free Naloxone kits containing Naloxone Hydrochloride medication. The training will teach you how and when to use Naloxone.

You can receive the training if:

  • You or someone you know is at-risk for opioid overdose, whether in recovery for opioid use disorder or actively using opioids
  • You may find yourself in a position to help someone who is at-risk of opioid overdose
