Naloxone Distribution at Participating Pharmacies in Newark

NJ Human Services is making the opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone available for free September 24 to 26 at participating pharmacies throughout New Jersey.

The distribution is part of the Murphy Administration’s continued effort to combat the opioid crisis. New Jerseyans will be able to visit participating pharmacies and anonymously obtain naloxone for free without a prescription or an appointment. Each naloxone pack contains two doses.

Naloxone can reverse overdoses from opioids by blocking the effects of opioids on the brain.

Those who obtain naloxone will also be given information regarding addiction treatment and recovery through Reach NJ, a 24-hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week addictions hotline where people who have Substance Use Disorder (SUD) or friends and family of people with SUD can get immediate assistance and support from live, New Jersey-based, trained addiction counselors.

An individual who calls the program’s toll-free number, 844-ReachNJ (732-2465), will reach a live staff member who will help connect you to treatment.
