Who: NaloxoneSaves.org is a website designed to educate pharmacists and the public about the North Carolina State Health Director’s statewide standing order for naloxone. The North Carolina Division of Public Health, Injury and Violence Prevention Branch’s Poisoning and Drug Overdose Prevention Program works in collaboration with many partners statewide to address drug overdose in North Carolina including, the UNC Injury Prevention Research Center. Together, we bring you this website. The website is broken out into sections for Naloxone Dispensers, User Survey, General Information, and a locator of where to get Naloxone.
The purpose of this website is to:
Provide education about naloxone use and overdose prevention
Offer a method for pharmacies to activate their standing order
Gather information about naloxone use and attempts to reverse overdoses
