The Health Unit is committed to increasing access to harm reduction services to prevent opioid overdose-related deaths. The Naloxone Program, offered through the Health Unit, distributes naloxone (a drug that can reverse the effects of opioids) to eligible community organizations to distribute to their clients who use opioids or are at risk of an opioid overdose, and their friends and families.
This website is intended as a resource for our community partners to support them in the distribution of naloxone. Community partners, such as yourselves, are instrumental to increasing access to naloxone for those who need it the most. Thank you for being a part of this program! Together, we can better support the needs of our clients and community.
If you are a community organization interested in the Naloxone Program and would like more information, please call the Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention at 519-258-2146, extension 3100.
