Organizations and individuals in Pennsylvania can receive free doses of naloxone, a life-saving medication used in the event of a suspected opioid overdose.
Individuals can access naloxone at local pharmacies through the PA Department of Health’s standing order, or can request the medication at no cost through PA’s statewide mail-to-home naloxone program.
Organizational first-responders (including parks, restaurants, hotels, schools, provider offices, and others) can receive kits with two doses through designated Centralized Coordinating Entities (CCEs). A map and contact information for the CCEs is available on the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency website.
A training video on administering naloxone also is available.
