Take Home Naloxone Programme

by Alcohol & Drugs Action Claimed

Naloxone, which can temporarily reverse an opioid overdose for up to 20 minutes, is now available on site at ADA. Drug related deaths remain a huge concern and Naloxone is an important part of the programme of activities in place to prevent drug related deaths in Scotland. The legislation means that people can come to ADA and get the kits here rather than having to go to a pharmacy to collect them. The legislation also makes it easier for family members to obtain kits. We would encourage anyone who has a friend or loved one with a history of using opiates (e.g. heroin, methadone etc ) to come and get their free Naloxone kit from ADA
