please read: FOR Facebook and REDDIT referrals

We are aware that several Facebook and Reddit groups recently posted information about These postings have resulted in hundreds of requests over the past few days. Please understand that our services were created because some people who use drugs are unable to access naloxone in their community. Perhaps they live in a rural area and have no transportation to get to a pharmacy, perhaps there is no standing order in their state and laypeople are not given naloxone. Our focus is to resource people who are the most likely to respond to an opioid overdose- and have no other way to access it.

The majority of our supplies are donated and packed by volunteers. We pay for postage through donations by the people who request our services. (Donation information HERE.)

If you live in a city or large town, or if your state supports pharmacy-based naloxone, please access these in-person opportunities as primary resources. If you are visiting our website because you just want naloxone—but do not have regular connections with people who use drugs or are not likely to be a first responder—please do not access supplies through our site. We appreciate your integrity in allowing our program to reach folks that truly cannot access naloxone and need it to save lives.
