Get Naloxone

Naloxone is a lifesaving drug that can quickly reverse an opioid overdose. Naloxone (commonly known by its brand name Narcan) can help a person start breathing again when they have overdosed and is available as an injectable, auto-injection, or nose spray.

Anyone concerned that they may have or be in a place where they might encounter an opioid overdose, should get Naloxone. Since September 2015, Naloxone has been available in Minnesota without a prescription. Minnesota also recently passed a good Samaritan law that protects people who administer Naloxone, in good faith, from criminal and civil prosecution.

Naloxone is only effective with reversing overdoses caused by opioids. It does not harm someone to receive it. When in doubt get it, be trained and don’t be afraid to use it. If you give someone Naloxone, dial 911 immediately because medical attention is required.

How members of the public can access Naloxone from this organization:

RAAN staff at each of the organization’s five offices have Narcan kits. Office locations are generally open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. but it’s good to check to be sure staff will be there. RAAN’s Duluth and Mankato offices operate syringe exchange programs and have staff who can train and distribute Narcan during open hours 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday (Friday the offices close at 3 p.m.). In addition, RAAN has staff who can travel to do training and distribution; at least 10 people per location is required.  Contact Deb at or 218-606-2345 (northern Minnesota) or Troy at or 507-995-1939 (southern Minnesota).
