Naloxone Overdose Prevention Laws

The Prescription Drug Abuse Policy System's Naloxone Overdose Prevention Laws offers a clickable map that provides general information about states’ naloxone laws—to be used for informational purposes rather than as legal advice—such as whether naloxone can be prescribed to family members or whether a “standing prescription” allows anyone who has completed training to obtain naloxone from a pharmacy.
