Naloxone is a drug that temporarily reverses effects of an opioid poisoning or overdose.
There are over 2,000 sites in Alberta, where anyone can pick up a kit free of charge. Training is available wherever kits are provided. Kits can be obtained anonymously.
Naloxone is not a substitute for emergency medical support. Always call 911 call when administering Naloxone.
