What is Naloxone?
Naloxone is a medication known as an "opioid antagonist," and when given to someone who is experiencing an opioid overdose, it can quickly reverse the overdose by restoring a person's breathing. An opioid overdose can be fatal because at high doses, opioids slow down or stop a person's breathing, at which point they may suffer brain damage or die from oxygen deprivation.
If administered accidentally to someone who has no opioids in their system, Naloxone has no known negative effects. It is a very safe medication to administer.
As an Opioid Overdose Prevention Program, we strive to distribute Naloxone kits to as many individuals as possible.
