Naloxone Resources

You can access naloxone one of the following ways:

1. Behind the counter at selected pharmacies. All CVS and Walgreens pharmacies now have naloxone available “behind the counter”, although not all pharmacists know how to train someone to administer it. If you’re not sure how to ask a pharmacist for naloxone, print this Golden Ticket and take it with you. Remember to ask to be trained!
Not all pharmacies have naloxone, so here is the most recent list of  pharmacies with a standing order to sell naloxone behind the counter: Pharmacies with Naloxone Standing Order.

2. Prescription. Your doctor can write you a prescription that can be filled at any pharmacy.

3. Naloxone Pilot Site. If you are a user or a potential bystander (i.e., you are at risk of overdose or you personally know someone at risk of overdose), you can get free training and naloxone at one of these pilot sites:
