Naloxone is a life-saving medication for opioid overdoses. In June 2016, the Ontario government implemented the Ontario Naloxone Program for Pharmacies (ONPP) to enhance access to naloxone. The cost of the naloxone kits are covered through the program and are available to all Ontarians without a prescription.
This study aims to describe the initial uptake of naloxone through the ONPP and characteristics of the individuals receiving and pharmacies dispensing naloxone kits.
