Opioid Risks and Overdose Prevention​

Safe Storage of Medications

Overdose Prevention

  • Naloxone (also known as Narcan®) is a medicine that can reverse an opioid overdose–like an overdose caused by fentanyl or heroin.
  • Naloxone is safe to use and only works if a person has opioids in their body.
  • If you administer naloxone to someone who is overdosing, you are protected by the Rhode Island Good Samaritan Law. This law provides certain legal protection when you call 911 when someone is overdosing, whether you have drugs on you or not.
