Frequently Asked Questions

Q: We received a request that asked for naloxone for five people, what should we do?

A: That’s entirely up to you. If the individual has a history of overdose or witnessing an overdose, we would prioritize their request or at the very least, reach out to them to ask if their community is available to participate in the online training. That being said, the best way to get naloxone to people who need it is through social networks. It’s entirely up to you and your program resources, but we would support you providing the doses requested and additional materials about how to use the supplies. We would also make sure to include a personal message about connecting for additional support and supplies and contact information.

Q: I’m concerned about the intramuscular naloxone being crushed in the bubble mailer when it passes through the mail, has this happened before?

A: We’ve never had any report of supplies being crushed or unusable after being mailed. We have had one experience where a package was received ripped open with no contents. We’re unclear if the issue was due to human or machine mishandling. Overall, it’s happened to less than .02% of our mailings
