Having a Naloxone Rescue Kit in your home and/or your car could be a life saving tool should you ever encounter someone who may have overdosed.
Naloxone reverses opioid (also known as narcotics) overdose. Utah residents are very fortunate to have access to help from grous like Utah Naloxone, an organization seeking to reduce opioid overdose deaths. Utah Naloxone is the provider of free Naloxone Rescue Kits. These rescue kits can cost between $100-200, making this an amazing opportunity to receive free kits. Hopefully, you will never need to use it, but having it available could save a life.
You can get your free Naloxone Rescue Kit at any county library in Utah, no questions asked! Free kits are limited to one person per day. If you can’t make it to a county library, go to www.utahnaloxone.org for more ways to get your free kit.
This program is available via the support of sponsors and donors, so if you end up using the kit, please reach out to Utah Naloxone to report your usage of the kit for the continued support of the program’s sponsors and donors.
Kits include instructions on how to use it, but if you need help or a one-on-one demonstration on how to use your kit, Lotus Health is happy to help, just give us a call!
