The Good Samaritan and Naloxone Act 139 of 2014

  • The Good Samaritan and Naloxone Act 139 of 2014 goes in effect November 29th which includes several critical components, including Good Samaritan provisions which provide immunity from arrest for reporting an overdose, as well as allowing for greatly increased access to the overdose antidote medication, Naloxone (Narcan). This rescue drug can reverse the effects of a drug overdose when administered by medical service providers and law enforcement with the proper training to someone suffering from an overdose.

  • Members of the community, family members, friends, and bystanders may be prescribed naloxone and can lawfully administer the drug to someone who is experiencing an overdose. Although not necessary to receive a prescription for naloxone, we recommend the training. Please visit www.getnaloxonenow.org to access available training.
