Where can I get naloxone?
Naloxone is available under the statewide standing order through participating pharmacies. It is up to each individual pharmacy to decide whether to dispense naloxone under the statewide standing order or under a separate standing order. You can contact your local pharmacy to determine whether it is currently dispensing naloxone under a standing order.
If you are not able to obtain naloxone through a standing order at a pharmacy, you have other options to obtain naloxone. You may seek a prescription for naloxone from a health care provider.
