No-Cost Naloxone Access
The Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) and the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) are offering important and potentially life-saving information on how to access Naloxone at no cost. Naloxone saves lives by reversing opioid overdoses. In addition to efforts like expanding access to treatment, services, and supports for people with substance use disorder (SUD), naloxone is a critical tool in Pennsylvania’s efforts to address the opioid epidemic.
Since 2017, the Wolf Administration has taken a number of steps to increase naloxone access for people and communities across Pennsylvania who need it the most. As we continue to deal with the mental and behavioral health impacts brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, we realize the fight is far from over. We are again seeing an uptick in drug overdose deaths, and the vast majority of these deaths are opioid- and fentanyl-related. Being prepared, learning the signs of overdose and how to respond, and getting naloxone, can help save lives.
The PA Department of Education encourages you to learn about the ways individuals, organizations, and agencies can access naloxone. This flier outlines resources to access no-cost naloxone in Pennsylvania. For more information contact Sam Koch (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Alyssa Subsinsky (email@example.com).
