ORLANDO, FL  — Advanced Recovery Systems is proud to announce that Orlando Outpatient Center (OOC) provides free Narcan for all college students, regardless of a diagnosis.

“As a director at Orlando Outpatient Center, I take immense pride in our commitment to providing free Narcan to college students who seek our help,” said Executive Director of Orlando Outpatient Center, Vicki Garner.

“With over 140,000 college students living in Central Florida, it’s not just about saving lives; it’s about empowering our future leaders to make responsible choices and fostering a culture of compassion and support on campus. We want to ensure we are doing everything we can to provide them a lifeline of hope and recovery in their backyard.”

Orlando Outpatient Center is part of the Advanced Recovery Systems (ARS) nationwide network of drug and alcohol rehabilitation and outpatient centers. Orlando Outpatient Center provides comprehensive outpatient programs that address drug and alcohol addictions, as well as co-occurring mental health conditions, in a nurturing setting. Outpatient treatment, coupled with aftercare planning, is crucial for achieving long-term sobriety, and the OOC team is committed to assisting those looking to adopt a lifestyle of recovery.

“We’re not merely preventing overdoses; we’re offering a chance at redemption, healing, and a brighter future,” said Garner. “By extending our hand to this vulnerable population, we’re sowing the seeds of recovery, making our campus communities safer, stronger, and more compassionate places for all.”
