Get Nalaxone

The Opioid Overdose Reversal Drug

what is nalaxone?

Naloxone, also known as Narcan, is a safe and effective medication that can reverse an overdose from prescription painkillers or heroin in as little as 30 seconds. If you or a loved one are taking opioids for any reason, you should have naloxone on hand.

 GET FREE NALOXONE MAILED STRAIGHT TO YOU

 

To request a free naloxone/ Narcan opioid overdose reversal kit, please fill out our confidential order request form found following the 8 minute training video below. 

Thanks to a partnership between NEXT Harm Reduction and The Chris Atwood Foundation, people are able to receive intramuscular naloxone through the mail. Our work is driven by activism and mutual aid and is largely unfunded, please take this into consideration if you are able to make a charitable contribution to support our work. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

To qualify for mail-based naloxone distribution, you will need to view a 8 minute training video, answer a short quiz, and provide enrollment information. Please note that NEXT and The CAF do not interact with insurance in any way and our enrollment form is not HIPAA compliant.

Opioid overdose prevention and response trainings can vary, and in some cases cover the topic extensively. We encourage you to visit our educational resources page to learn more about rescue breathing, the recovery position, opioid overdose aftercare, and a host of other valuable topics. 

Our training video, quiz, and enrollment are available in both English and Spanish. Please choose the option that is the most comfortable for you.
