The LDH Office of Behavioral Health will be ordering for distribution free nasal-spray naloxone kits. As there will be a limited number of kits purchased, priority is given to the following groups: 1) Local Human Services Districts/Authorities based on need; and 2) Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) for distribution to their at-risk clients and families.
As per Louisiana's standing order, naloxone is available to you without a prescription at your local pharmacy. If you are on Medicaid, you can get naloxone for free at your local pharmacy. The Naloxone standing order can be found at http://ldh.la.gov/opioids.
Naloxone coverage varies by insurance carrier.
