How does Naloxone work?

Naloxone is an opioid antagonist that dislodges opioids from receptors in the brain. This can reverse respiratory depression, restore breathing and save the lives of those who are in a state of opioid overdose.

For more information on Naloxone and how to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose, please visit the website of the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for its overview of naloxone and its overview of opioid overdoses.

It is important to remember that Naloxone is not a treatment for addiction. To learn more about available substance abuse treatment programs, or to find a service provider in your area, please visit SAMHSA’s search tool.
