MORRIS COUNTY — 32 Morris County pharmacies have enrolled in the StopOverdoses.nj.gov program. This initiative allows individuals to obtain life-saving naloxone anonymously without cost, as highlighted by State Human Services Commissioner Sarah Adelman.

The initiative is part of the Murphy Administration’s ongoing efforts to combat the opioid crisis and save lives by getting life-saving naloxone into as many hands as possible, said the state.

Naloxone is a medication that rapidly reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. Under the Naloxone365 initiative, those ages 14 and older can request and obtain naloxone at participating pharmacies for free without having to provide a name or reason. No prescription is needed.

One two-dose naloxone nasal spray kit is provided per visit.

Since Murphy announced the initiative in his January State of the State address, Human Services has partnered with the New Jersey Board of Pharmacy to recruit pharmacies to join the program. As of today, 610 pharmacies are participating, and 40,687 naloxone kits have already been distributed, said the DHS. The department said it will continue working to get more pharmacies to join.

This program enables consumers to obtain free naloxone any day of the year.

“Naloxone is a safe, easy to use, fast-acting, and effective nasal spray medication to reverse an overdose and save someone’s life,” Commissioner Adelman said. “Making naloxone accessible and available for free and anonymously in pharmacies eliminates the most common barriers to the life-saving medication, helps reduce stigma, and ultimately may encourage people to seek treatment and long-term recovery. New Jerseyans can search StopOverdoses.nj.gov to find participating pharmacies in every county across the state. Keeping naloxone in your medicine cabinet is a good idea for any person, so please consider getting some today”.
