The opioid crisis has become so prevalent nationwide that many college campuses, including USC, are now stocking an overdose medication called naloxone, or narcan.
Narcan, which is administered via nasal spray, is available at pharmacies on campus. The school has made a concerted effort to let students know about the drug's availability.
"Narcan can save a life, so the more people who know about it, the better," said Katty Hsu, clinical coordinator for USC pharmacies.
But it’s not just campus health center that carry the drugs. The USC Department of Public Safety began arming officers with narcan two weeks ago.
It is important to know that narcan is available without a prescription, and that it is covered by the USC student health insurance plan.
