Get Free Naloxone by Mail in WA State

Hand holding a nasal narcan kit

Do you have naloxone (a.k.a. Narcan) in your first aid kit? This medication is given when an opioid overdose happens and can help save someone’s life. Anyone who uses opioids (even if they are prescribed by a physician) or who has friends or family who do should have naloxone on hand just in case. Additionally, because fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid, can now be found in any illicit drug bought on the street or online, it’s a good idea for anyone using any substances to carry naloxone.

In Washington State, you can now order FREE naloxone kits by mail. The mail order program is meant for people who can’t easily go to a community organization or a pharmacy to get a kit. (If you work with a program that would like to request naloxone to distribute, check out the WA Dept of Health’s Overdose Education and Naloxone Distribution Program.)

If you’re in King County, you can order free naloxone via Kelley-Ross Pharmacy.

For all other counties, you can get your free naloxone via the People’s Harm Reduction Alliance. (This form is also available in Spanish.)

Please help spread the word about this great service!
