Increase Access, Reduce Stigma, Save Lives
Opioid overdose is currently the leading cause of death among adults 50 years old and younger in the United States. Data driven, innovative solutions to address this epidemic are crucial to reducing fatalities and getting people into treatment.
The NaloxBox mission is to improve the capacity of bystander rescuers to save the lives of victims of opioid overdose by strategically placing innovative smart cabinets in settings most in need of quickly accessible, public use naloxone.
Each NaloxBox is designed to accommodate up to 2 doses of the potent antidote for opioid overdose named naloxone (brand name Narcan®), and is equipped with a mask for rescue breathing, gloves, and information on how to obtain personal naloxone and how to access addiction treatment.
