Stop Overdoses in PA: Get Help Now Week is a statewide initiative to give the overdose-reversal medication naloxone to Pennsylvanians for free and get help for residents suffering from the disease of opioid-use disorder.
Naloxone kits will be distributed for free at 95 locations
unless otherwise noted
and as supplies last on
September 18 between 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM and on
September 25 between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. No appointments are necessary. Some locations are operating at different hours and only on certain days. See the map below for locations or
download a list of locations.
After picking up a kit, take a selfie, post it on Facebook or Twitter and tell us why you carry naloxone. Use the hashtag #WhyICarryNaloxone!
This training video explains what naloxone is, what it can be used for and how to use both the intranasal form and the auto-injector form.
To receive a certificate of completion, you must watch the video on TRAIN PA. You will not receive a certificate for watching on this page or on YouTube.
In Pennsylvania, the standing order signed by Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine allows anyone to get naloxone without a prescription. Completing the training on TRAIN PA and printing a certificate of completion will protect you legally as a Good Samaritan trying to help someone in need.
