Naloxone Distribution Day

Saturday September 14, 2019

On September 14th, Michiganders can go to a participating pharmacy and anonymously pick up a NARCAN kit at no cost.

View the map of participating pharmacies which includes several major chains as well as local, independent pharmacies. NARCAN® Nasal Spray counteracts the life-threatening effects of an opioid overdose and is a prefilled, needle-free device that requires no assembly and is sprayed into one nostril while patients lay on their back. Of the 55,008 kits that were purchased, 51,924 kits will be shipped to pharmacies statewide and the additional kits will be distributed on the same day at the Recovery Walk on Belle Isle in Detroit. For more information, please contact the Office of Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (OROSC) by calling 517-335-2300.
