Naloxone Distribution

A proven strategy to address rising opioid overdose deaths is widespread naloxone distribution within the community.

Naloxone is a medication which reverses the effects of an opioid overdose and its broad distribution in the community provides a safety net so that its life saving capabilities are present when and where an opioid overdose occurs. This landing page is intended to provide tools and resources for programs and staff who will be administering naloxone, distributing to community members, and collecting and recording data.
