Free naloxone kits are now available by mail to residents of the Magnolia State, according to the Mississippi State Department of Health (MDHS).

Naloxone, also known by other brand names such as Narcan and Kloxxado, is a life-saving medication that can reverse an overdose from opioids such as heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioid medications.

Those at an increased risk or those who know someone at an increased risk for opioid overdose are encouraged to carry naloxone and keep it at home.

One requesting a kit can click here. The individual will be asked to complete a request form to receive a kit and to watch a short training video that is provided at the end of the process. Kits will be mailed to the address provided by the requester.

All information will be kept confidential. Responses will only be used to identify areas of need and to help MDHS to improve services offered by our program.
