The State of New Jersey – Department of Human Services is giving away naloxone kits – an opioid reversal drug – September 24th to 26th at participating pharmacies throughout New Jersey.
Naloxone can reverse overdoses from opioids by blocking the effects of opioids on the brain.
Those who obtain naloxone will also be given information regarding addiction treatment and recovery through Reach NJ, a 24-hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week addictions hotline where people who have Substance Use Disorder (SUD) or friends and family of people with SUD can get immediate assistance and support from live, New Jersey-based, trained addiction counselors. Any individual who calls the program’s toll-free number 844-REACHNJ (732-2465) will reach a live staff member who will help connect you to treatment. Please refer to the list below for participating Ocean County Pharmacies:
