NOW ACCEPTING REQUESTS FOR MORE NARCAN
Due to the continued increase in demand for naloxone relative to currently available funding, we are anticipating longer-than-expected processing times. As a result, we are currently unable to provide a specific timeframe for your delivery. Please know that our team is working diligently to fulfill all pending requests as efficiently as possible. We understand the importance of your request and the impact this delay may have on your operations. We will provide you with an updated timeframe as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience, understanding, and the work you do to save lives!
We are grateful to be entrusted with the distribution of state funded naloxone in Texas. Since its inception, this program has distributed over 300,000 doses of naloxone to individuals and organizations across Texas, who have in turn, saved thousands of lives. As we embark on a new fiscal year for this program:
Consistent with national trends, high overdose mortality in Texas has led to a demand for naloxone that dramatically outpaces supply.
An increasing emphasis is being placed on ensuring that naloxone is distributed to people most likely to witness and respond to an overdose; often referred to as “saturation.”
We ask for your help in our shared efforts to continually refine best practices for achieving “saturation” and preventing naloxone from expiring unused.
With your help, we strive for fair, efficient, and equitable distribution of naloxone that is responsive to the ever-shifting dynamics of overdose risk in Texas.
DISTRIBUTION GUIDELINES 2022 - 2023
Organizations may request a maximum of 24 units per order. This is not an annual limit, and once the 24 units have been distributed, subsequent orders of 24 units may be requested.
We can now provide the intramuscular formulation of naloxone to organizations (not individuals) who serve those who prefer it. Because intramuscular naloxone entails a different procurement process, please contact us directly at email@example.com
Naloxone distribution tactics unlikely to promote “saturation” (e.g., naloxone issued in conference gift bags) or that duplicate other programming (e.g., dispensing via pharmacies) are not possible under this program.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I didn't think that Narcan would really work. Nor did I think that someone would OD right here in my home. If it wasn't for the Narcan you sent me I would be burying my friend right now."
