In an effort to address overdoses in the community, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office is making Narcan freely available, no questions asked.

PCSO deputies already carry Narcan, but now have them available at three locations across Pinal County at no cost, according to officials.

In a statement, PCSO officials say that there have been almost 600 suspected opioid overdoses in the county.

"We have seen too many people lose their lives due to drug overdose this year," said Sheriff Mark Lamb. "If you or a loved one uses opioids recreationally or for pain management, Narcan is now available to you, no questions asked."

Below are the three locations where Narcan is available for pickup. The Casa Grande and San Tan Valley locations are closed to the public due to the pandemic, with officials asking visitors to call ahead before visiting:

Florence: 971 N. Jason Lopez Cir.

Casa Grande: 820 East Cottonwood Lane Bldg D
Phone: 520.866.7419

San Tan Valley: 40815 N. Ironwood Dr. #101
