The Overdose Prevention Act now allows doctors the ability to prescribe the opiate antidote Narcan ® (naloxone) to those in a position to help someone else during an overdose of heroin or other opioids. The law also eliminates civil and criminal liability to anyone who administers naloxone.
The Opioid Overdose Prevention Project is made possible by funding received from the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the Governor's Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse and JSAS HealthCare, Inc. in collaboration with Barnabas Health, Institute for Prevention.
