Overdose Prevention

We offer naloxone (Narcan) and overdose response training free of charge to people in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. Making naloxone widely available in our communities saves lives by preventing opioid overdose deaths. In 2020, we distributed 2,516 doses of naloxone to our community, and received 114 reports of overdose reversals: instances where people used the naloxone they received to save a life.

We especially prioritize getting naloxone into the hands of people at risk of overdose and their families and friends. We also offer fentanyl test strips as an overdose prevention tool.
