Naloxone

Naloxone is a medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. “Narcan” is the brand name that people are most familiar with. Naloxone temporarily blocks the effects of opioids (e.g. heroin, oxycontin, hydromorphone, fentanyl, methadone) by binding to the same receptors in the brain that opiates do. It reverses the effects on breathing that can lead to death.

We distribute Naloxone kits (intra-nasal and injectable) throughout our organization, with the majority being distributed through:

  • Mobile Outreach
  • Addictions Support Workers
  • Hepatitis C Treatment & Support team
  • Street Health location

For more information, call Mobile Outreach at 519-890-6392, or reach one of our Addictions Support Workers (through the S.T.E.P.S Program) at 226-722-4673 (HOPE).
