Naloxone

Naloxone is a life-saving medication used to temporarily reverse an opioid overdose. It is only effective for overdoses involving opioids such as heroin or prescription pain relievers (e.g. oxycodone, morphine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, and methadone). Naloxone can be administered via intramuscular injection or the intranasal spray, Narcan®.

The CMHA Program is the local storage and targeted distribution center of Narcan® for all of Pima County with the aim of reducing opioid overdose deaths in our community. Provided by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), CMHA supplies Narcan® to local agencies and community providers who work with at-risk populations, including local law enforcement, substance use treatment agencies, and other qualified health providers.
