Provincial Government Increasing Availability of Naloxone Kits



The province is increasing the availability of Naloxone Kits.


These kits are available for anyone who uses opioids and family members, friends and other persons in a position to assist a person at risk of overdose from opioids.


Free naloxone kits are publicly available to reverse the potentially fatal effects of an overdose involving opioids such as fentanyl. Residents are encouraged to call 811 or visit naloxone kit distribution sites for information on where to access free naloxone kits.


The Provincial Take Home Naloxone program has increased the number of distribution sites from 100 to over 130 distribution sites across the province with efforts underway to increase access to free naloxone kits by adding new sites, including municipal offices and food banks. Mail-out options are also available for people who wish to receive a kit.
