Distribute Naloxone

The Maine Naloxone Distribution Initiative

In July of 2019, the Maine Naloxone Distribution Initiative began ordering and distributing state-purchased naloxone to community organizations, clinical sites, and end-users throughout the State of Maine to distribute free of charge. These organizations, known as Tier Two Distributors, order their naloxone kits from one of three Tier One Distributors who disseminate naloxone to Maine’s sixteen counties. Tier Two organizations can either keep their naloxone on hand in case of emergencies at their facility, as is the case with schools, some community organizations and businesses, or if they are engaged with high-risk individuals as part of their community work they can work as redistributors, dispensing their naloxone kits to end-users to facilitate the reversal of private overdoses in the community.

55,788 doses of state-supplied naloxone were distributed by public health and harm reduction organizations through November of 2020
1136 opioid overdose reversals were reported with state-supplied naloxone by public health and harm reduction partners from January-November 2020
