September 9, 2022

New website launched for free Naloxone

NaloxoneOhio Governor Mike DeWine is recognizing September as Recovery Month. RecoveryOhio announced the creation of Naloxone.Ohio.gov, a new resource that provides Ohioans with a simplified process for obtaining free naloxone, a life-saving drug used to reverse an opioid overdose.

The new website makes requesting naloxone as seamless as possible for all Ohioans, whether they are a first responder, community member, or distribution site, and enhances access to prevention and treatment information.

“Overdoses impact us all,” said Governor DeWine. “We know that naloxone is a critical tool in Ohio’s fight against addiction and, ultimately, makes our communities safer. I encourage Ohioans to use Naloxone.Ohio.gov and carry naloxone.”

Recovery is possible. Hear from three Ohioans on their journey to recovery in this short video.

“Knowing how to respond in an emergency can save lives, and it is our goal that these resources be widely shared in communities across Ohio,” said Ohio Department of Health Director Bruce Vanderhoff, MD, MBA, whose agency coordinates Ohio’s naloxone distribution efforts through the Project DAWN initiative.
