Naloxone is a drug that reverses the effects of opioids and can be administered when a person shows symptoms of an overdose.
Through a partnership with Overdose Lifeline, Inc., Indiana has made 25,000 naloxone kits available to individuals, families, first responders, and communities to help reduce opioid overdose deaths. If you or someone you know need naloxone, request a free supply at https://www.overdoselifeline.org/2020-indiana-naloxone-request/. #INRecoveryMonth2020
When administered, a person typically shows a response to the naloxone within five minutes but may require additional doses depending on the type and amount of opioids in his or her system. Naloxone is not a substitute for medical attention and those who administer it are required to call 911.
