This lifesaving, easy-to-use nasal spray can reverse an opioid overdose

Providing overdose prevention, recognition, and response education to opioid use disorder patients and their neighbors, friends, families, and the service providers who work with them is a harm-reduction intervention that saves lives. The South Carolina Overdose Prevention Project trains first responders, as well as opioid use disorder patients and their caregivers, to recognize an opioid overdose and to administer naloxone to save a life. The development of a statewide distribution system is making naloxone available and easily accessible to trained first responders, at-risk citizens, and concerned community members, regardless of their ability to pay for the medication.

On this page, you will find signs of an overdose, information about naloxone and where to get it, a list of Community Distributors, and more.
