Naloxone (often called by the brand name Narcan) is a safe medication that reverses opioid overdoses and saves lives. When someone is experiencing an overdose, they are at a high risk of death. By administering naloxone, you are helping keep that person alive until emergency medical attention arrives.

Always call 911 if you think someone is overdosing, even if you give naloxone.

The NYS 911 Good Samaritan Law protects you from criminal liability if you call 911 in a life or death situation.

Where to get naloxone:

Many community-based organizations offer naloxone & trainings for free. Please contact the Staten Island Partnership for Community Wellness for more information.

Most pharmacies on Staten Island offer naloxone without a prescription. To find the location nearest you, click here
