Why get naloxone?

Naloxone is a life-saving medication that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. It works by temporarily reducing the effects of the drug so that patients can go to a medical facility. Naloxone is an important medication to have on hand if you or a family member uses opioids. If you or a loved one is experiencing an opioid overdose, immediately call 911 and go to your nearest medical facility.
