Arkansas

In 2017, there were 15.5 opioid overdose deaths per 100,000 Arkansas residents. (cit.) If you are a person who uses drugs or if you are around people who use drugs, please consider learning how to respond to an opioid overdose and carrying naloxone (intranasal brand name: Narcan). Naloxone is a medication designed to reverse an opioid overdose. Opioids slow down the activity of the central nervous system. One effect of this is slowed or stopped breathing which could lead to death. Naloxone knocks the opioids out of the opioid receptors in the brain which allows the person who is experiencing an opioid overdose to begin breathing normally. We have a helpful FAQ and are constantly updating it with questions from our site visitors. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, let us know.

NEXT Naloxone’s Arkansas affiliate is Central Arkansas Harm Reduction Project. CAHRP is a grassroots organization based in Little Rock that provides naloxone and other harm reduction supplies. Delivery may be available. Call or text the CAHRP hotline (501) 438-9158.
