Saskatchewan’s publicly-funded Take Home Naloxone (THN) program will be expanding to provide free THN kits to people who may witness an overdose, including friends and family members of those at risk.
Naloxone is a medication that, when administered properly, can rapidly reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. It is important to note that even after naloxone is administered, further medical treatment is required. Call 911 immediately if you suspect an overdose.
The THN program is now established in 15 communities across Saskatchewan. For more information, please click here.
