Information for Medical Practitioners

State law allows physicians to prescribe Naloxone (Narcan ®) to anyone in a position to assist others during an overdose (e.g., bystanders). This is called third party prescribing.

Naloxone (Narcan ®) Training

This training video is for those who want to assist others experiencing an opioid overdose by providing emergency assistance to them and by giving them intranasal naloxone (Narcan ®), the overdose antidote. After viewing the video and other information, individuals may ask their physicians/advance practice nurses about getting a prescription for naloxone (Narcan ®) (they can also be referred to this website for information about prescribing the drug and the intranasal applicator).

Opioid Overdose Prevention Program

The three regional opioid overdose prevention programs provide individuals at-risk for overdose, their family members, friends, and loved ones with naloxone rescue kits and educate and train them on how to prevent, recognize and respond to an opioid overdose. Additionally, funded organizations have established a procedure to make naloxone (Narcan ®) available to those who are either at-risk or have family, friends or loved ones at-risk for an opioid overdose. Intranasal administration of naloxone (Narcan ®) is the protocol recommended by the Department of Health.
