Narcan! Where Can You Find It
« on: June 06, 2015, 02:00:44 AM »
I am going to try and list as many resources possible for those interested in getting a hold of Narcan here in the states.

http://harmreduction.org/issues/overdose-prevention/tools-best-practices/naloxone-program-case-studies/

Here is another site that primarily serves the state of Washington, but they have resources that you may find helpful in obtaining Narcan.
http://stopoverdose.org/index.htm

For legal technical assistance and support on drug overdose prevention and harm reduction: Here are some numbers to call.

    Eastern Region: (410) 706-5575
    Mid-States Region: (734) 647-1316
    Northern Region: (651) 695-7749
    Southeastern Region: (919) 260-4303
    Western Region: (480) 727-8576

I will add more as I find them and please feel free to add any information you may have in your state. We need to keep our fellow addicts alive.

^bump this thread.^

Where can someone in GA get narcan without a script? I can drive to ATL or Macon if there's a needle exchange there. We need more folks to comment on this thread so we can get a lot of harm reduction info out there to everybody and then maybe we can make it a sticky.

Are Walgreens or CVS's carrying narcan without a script yet? I know a mom and pop pharmacy wouldn't give me any DURING a friend having an OD.

I'll have to google ATL needle exchange to see if they have one there. I'd love to have a bottle of narcan just in case, and for anybody whether I know them or not. It'd feel great to save a life like that. It felt good the last time I saved someone from an OD by giving them suboxone and giving them rescue breathing but it would've been much easier to just give them a shot of IM or IV narcan.

Does anybody know if CVS or Walgreens or any of the big chain pharmacies came through on their promise to give everybody access to narcan/naloxone without a script? Seems like doctors (especially pain docs) would write a script for naloxone to every patient receiving pain meds. But I imagine the DEA or state board or whoever would twist that into thinking/saying "He even wrote his patients narcan knowing they were at risk for an overdose" or something along those lines.
