Request a Naloxone Kit
You can get a naloxone rescue kit and be trained in its use.
If you are high risk* you can fill out the form below to get a free naloxone kit while supplies last.
High risk* – actively using street or RX opioids and any other street drug, in recovery from opioids or any street drug, a sex worker, have a lowered tolerance to opioids from a period of not using drugs, on MAT, or a loved one of a person at risk.
If you do not match any of our high risk descriptions, you can still purchase naloxone at Georgia pharmacies without a personal prescription.
Georgia Overdose Prevention DOES NOT provide naloxone to healthcare providers, law enforcement, any type of first responder, or schools.
OUR GRANT ONLY ALLOWS US TO EQUIP LAYPEOPLE AT HIGH RISK OF OVERDOSE AND THEIR LOVED ONES IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THEM.
Law enforcement and first responders in GA can apply for training and free naloxone by clicking here. Be sure to select “First Responder Training” (NOT Life-Saving Naloxone).
Schools (all grade levels), Public libraries, Universities, and YMCAs
Directions: E-mail [email protected] to request naloxone for your school / public library / university / YMCA.
You do not have to visit a physician to get their prescriber’s license #, name, and signature. There is a letter of authorization (LOA) on file at Emergent BioSolutions, Inc which Georgia Overdose Prevention requested Dr. Shonali Saha to write that does that! You may want to mention the LOA already on file when you email [email protected] with your naloxone request.
PLEASE DO NOT APPLY FOR KITS THROUGH GEORGIA OVERDOSE PREVENTION IF YOU ARE A HEALTHCARE PROVIDER, LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, FIRST RESPONDER, OR SCHOOL.
Due to the number of requests we are receiving and the expense of shipping, in most cases we are no longer able to send kits through the mail.
We will continue to mail kits to people who are Reporting a Reversal and have used their supplies. All other naloxone and testing strips will be delivered in person at training in a public place by our distributors.
To request a free Naloxone kit from us, please complete the form below.
Once we receive your submitted form, a Georgia Overdose Prevention naloxone distributor/trainer will contact you by email or phone to set up the training and in person delivery of your supplies.
Naloxone is available at GA pharmacies without a prescription. You can also obtain naloxone from local Recovery Community Organizations (https://gasubstanceabuse.org/rco-directory/) and from the Community Service Board that serves your county (https://dbhdd.georgia.gov/locations/community-service-board). Additionally, Georgia Harm Reduction Coalition (https://georgiaharmreduction.org) provides naloxone and fentanyl test strips free of charge at the Bennett Center (1231 Joseph E. Boone Blvd, Atlanta) and on outreach days at the Parker Center (759 Joseph E. Boone Blvd, Atlanta) and the Stone Mountain office (5462 Memorial Drive, Ste. 101). Call (404) 817-9994 or email [email protected] for more information.
Naloxone kits are available free of charge in naloxone overdose prevention boxes which are accessible to laypeople for immediate use or for protection against fatal overdose for high risk individuals. You can view the locations (red pin drop) and street/city addresses of these naloxone boxes using the map below or by visiting ganaloxone.com
Georgia Overdose Prevention equips uninsured and underinsured lay people at highest risk of overdose and their loved ones in close proximity. GOP’s grant does not allow us to equip law enforcement, first responders (traditional and nontraditional), schools, recovery community organizations, community service boards, or healthcare providers. There are other organizations funded to provide naloxone to those groups.
If you have any reversals from GOP or GHRC kits, please click the “Report Reversals” button below and complete the form. Reversal reports are kept anonymous, and this data helps us obtain more funding to purchase more naloxone to give to those in need.
