USA Opioid Crisis Mortality Reduction with NARCAN News Media Coverage as of AUGUST 20, 2022 (SEE LINKS AT THE BOTTOM)

6 states visited (CA, MT, TN, AR, KY, FL)

Almost 5 years of my efforts (started August 31,2017: International Overdose Awareness Day)

48 Florida counties visited

Over 400 classes taught by me including community/homeless/COVID19 events

OVER 300 human lives saved including 17 people I myself revived & 1 PUPPY SAVED

OVER 7,000 sprays donated to course attendees



THIS effort funded with $50,000 of my own money and $63,000 raised on GoFundMe (most successful GFM Narcan campaign in US History)

AS OF FEB 21, 2020, I AM OFFICIALLY A FL NONPROFIT & shifted all my human service efforts toward COVID19 through October,,2021- And, I AM NOW AN IRS APPROVED 501c3 , Fed EIN# 84-4151024

GoFundMe donations pay for:
1-Buying and shipping NARCAN all over the USA. Just watch my 1 hour FB video.
2-Buying and expenses distributing NARCAN to volunteer fire departments and police agencies nationwide.
3- Buying NARCAN & travel expenses for out of state classes
4-Expenses for conducting free 2 hour classes all across Florida.
5-Expenses for responding in real time to 911 OD calls in SoFLA and visiting business Locations in SoFLA after such events to offer NARCAN and training to staff.
6-Buying and distributing NARCAN for animal AND human use at veterinary /animal rescue distribution events.

Thanks to the FL DCF NARCAN grant program funded by the US DOH SAMHSA, we now receive NARCAN free! This NARCAN can NON be used for out of state distribution and can only be given to laypersons, NOT police,fire,EMS or first responder personnel.


My name is Luis Garcia and I teach others how to save lives. I have never tried drugs, been arrested or been intoxicated. I don’t make any money from employment in the addiction field. I am not in any type of 12 Step recovery program. 

Nobody I know has been impacted by Substance Use Disorder, but this is a disease that could affect anyone.

 I retired from a 28 year career as a Firefighter/Paramedic .  In December, 2015, the FDA approved a nasal spray version of the Narcan I had administered over 3,000 times in my 911 career. 

Narcan literally brings people back from the dead minutes after they stop breathing, with no side effects. I knew that this was the way I wanted to help fight the Opioid Pandemic. 


The 4mg high dosage Narcan nasal spray I purchase and give out is FDA approved for layperson usage and is 91% effective in reversing cardiopulmonary arrest if a single dose is administered within 8 minutes of collapse. I have administered this nasal spray as a citizen 15 times, and 14 of those persons survived the cardiac arrest with Narcan.


All money raised on GoFundMe will be used to pay expenses and the purchase of Narcan. 

NOBODY chooses a life of pain, anguish and suffering.

EVERY life is worth saving...With Narcan, fellow human beings can once again become productive members of society......... No matter how long it takes to achieve sobriety. 

Dead people do not have a chance at recovery.
