Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided With Naloxone)

Project DAWN overview flyer

Project DAWN is an opioid overdose education and naloxone distribution (OEND) program, which provides FREE education on what puts someone at risk for opioid overdose, how to recognize the signs and symptoms of opioid overdose and how to respond to an opioid overdose and use naloxone (a.k.a Narcan) the antidote to opioid overdose.

Project DAWN provides program participants with a free naloxone kit.

Eligible program participants are individuals who are at-risk of opioid overdose including those who are in recovery for opioid addiction and those who are actively using opioids, in addition to individuals who may know someone who is at risk for opioid overdose.

To access Project DAWN’s confidential and free services, simply visit any of our walk-in locations during our open hours.

No appointment is necessary and visits typically take 15 to 30 minutes.


  • MetroHealth's Project DAWN project is the second of its kind in Ohio
  • It is the only program of its kind in Cuyahoga County
  • Initiated in 2013 by MetroHealth as part of Ohio's network of opioid education and naloxone distribution programs
