Ontario Harm Reduction Distribution Program

The Health Unit offers free Naloxone kits to:

  • active clients of a Needle Syringe Program who are age 16 and over and at risk of an overdose
  • friends or family members (age 16 and over) of active at-risk clients

The Health Unit provides information about other sources of Naloxone kits for people who do not meet these criteria.

Naloxone is a life-saving medication that can temporarily stop or reverse an opioid overdose. Examples of opioids include oxycodone, morphine, hydromorphone, fentanyl and codeine. If you think someone is having an opioid overdose call 9-1-1, then give naloxone right away.

Drop-in – no appointment necessary.
