THE LITTLE

FREE REVIVERY

GIVING THOSE IN NEED A SECOND CHANCE

 

SixSpeed, a Minneapolis ad agency, is fabricating, placing, and maintaining Little Free Reviveries around Minneapolis in partnership with Southside Harm Reduction Services. These stations will be stocked with NARCAN® naloxone nasal spray and fentanyl test strips.

THE LITTLE FREE REVIVERIES

HARM REDUCTION STATIONS

 

These stations are intended as a public good so people at risk, as well as friends and family, have access to potentially life-saving materials. They come in 3 colors: Green (pictured below), black, and white.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Highly visible elements through vinyl wrapping communicate that this is a harm reduction station. Little Free Reviveries are durable and easily maintained by our volunteers with no expectations from venues. Each station can hold just over 30 boxes of NARCAN® naloxone nasal spray with plenty of room for test strips and printed materials.

 

WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN THE CAUSE AS A VENUE, VOLUNTEER, OR THROUGH A DONATION?

WHY WOULD AN AGENCY LIKE US DO THIS?

 

Opioid overdoses in Minnesota increased 43% from 2020 to 2021, and they continue to rise in 2023. Diseases of despair are growing at an alarming rate and disproportionately affect young adults and BIPOC communities. As a full-service advertising agency, we can’t fully fix the problem, but we can shine some light. 


Little Free Reviveries are intended to force public attention on an issue too often swept under the rug. Hopefully, they save some lives. That’s why we are partnering with Southside Harm Reduction Services, to aid them in their mission to reduce opioid deaths in the Twin Cities area. 


If you would like to join the cause as a venue, volunteer, or through a donation, please fill out the form below.

HARM REDUCTION. AN FAQ.

QUESTIONS ABOUT LEGALITY AND USE

If you or someone you know is experiencing an overdose, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.

HOW TO ADMINISTER

USING NARCAN® NALOXONE NASAL SPRAY

In the event of an overdose, always dial 911. Common signs are greyish-blue lips, slow breathing, gurgling sounds, and slow response times.

  1. Take spray out of the box.

  2. Peel back the tab to open NARCAN® naloxone nasal spray.

  3. Hold the NARCAN® naloxone nasal spray with your thumb on the bottom of the plunger and your first and middle fingers on either side of the nozzle.

  4. Tilt the person's head back and provide support under the neck with your hand.

  5. Gently insert the tip of the nozzle into one nostril, until your fingers on either side of the nozzle are against the bottom of the person's nose.

  6. Press the plunger firmly to give the dose of NARCAN® naloxone nasal spray. Remove the NARCAN® naloxone nasal spray from the nostril after giving the dose.

  7. Wait and watch the person closely.

  8. If the person does not respond in 2-mins, repeat the steps and give the second dose of NARCAN® naloxone nasal spray.

Even after administering successfully ALWAYS SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION. NARCAN® naloxone nasal spray buys a person more time to seek help, it is not a cure in and of itself.
