Naloxone Availability

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

Naloxone coverage varies by insurance carrier.
