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

Due to the presence of fentanyl in the drug supply, a growing number of opioid overdoses are occurring in both urban and rural areas of our state, and access to naloxone for both professional and lay first responders is more important than ever before.  Professional responders such as law enforcement officers and firefighters are trained to administer naloxone and save lives through the South Carolina Overdose Prevention Project.  But increasingly important has been the development of a statewide naloxone distribution system that makes the overdose antidote even more accessible to at-risk citizens and concerned community members – at no cost.

On this page, you will find information that everyone should know, such as the signs of an overdose, information about naloxone and where to get it, a searchable map of Community Distributors, and more.
