Providing free medication to prevent overdoses.

Overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in our county. 

We all need to do everything we can so this doesn’t happen to another son, daughter, parent, grandparent, wife or husband, partner, sibling, best friend, co-worker or even a stranger.

Anyone Can Save A Life

Naloxone is a medication that quickly reverses the effects of an overdose from pain relievers or opioids such as heroin, methadone, fentanyl and morphine. To be effective, Naloxone must be available at the time of overdose. 

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is partnering with the County Health and Human Services Agency and the County of San Diego to make Naloxone more accessible where overdoses might occur. 

Details of a distribution program will be announced during a news conference on: 

Monday, January 23 2:00 p.m. Sheriff’s Investigations, Crime Lab, Property and Evidence (ICP) Building, 5590 Overland Avenue, Kearny Mesa (next to the Registrar of Voters)

Speakers:
Sheriff Kelly Martinez
Supervisor Nathan Fletcher
HHSA Director Nick Macchione
Chula Vista Police Department Chief Roxana Kennedy
Rady Children’s Hospital Child Abuse Pediatrician Dr. Natalie Laub

Partners:
San Diego County Probation Chief Tamika Nelson and Assistant Chief Denise Huffhines
