On Tuesday, June 18, 2019, the State of New Jersey will be providing FREE Naloxone at participating pharmacies throughout the state. New Jersey residents will be able to visit participating pharmacies and anonymously obtain naloxone at no cost without an individual prescription or an appointment.
Naloxone will be distributed one dose per person on a first-come, first-serve basis. Naloxone can reverse overdoses from opioids by blocking the effects of opioids on the brain. The one-day distribution of free naloxone is part of a pilot program approved by the New Jersey Board of Pharmacy.
