Overdose Antidote (Narcan) Orders Offered to Wyoming Groups



Free orders of a temporary opioid overdose antidote known as NARCAN® are available

for Wyoming groups through the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH).


NARCAN® is a potentially lifesaving prescription medication designed to quickly help

reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. Narcan can block the effects of opioids and

restore normal breathing in a person whose breathing has slowed, or even stopped, as

a result of opioid overdose. Opioids include drugs like Fentanyl, Morphine, OxyContin,

Methadone, and Heroin.


People interested in a personal supply of naloxone for themselves or for a close friend

or family member should ask local pharmacies or medical providers about the

medication.


WDH continues to offer naloxone to groups that may be able to help people

who are experiencing an opioid overdose. More information about group orders can be

found at https://health.wyo.gov/behavioralhealth/mhsa/mat/.


Interested groups must be trained and write a guideline for their organization. After

reviewing the organization's guideline, the Sublette County Health Officer can assist

with the prescription for ordering Narcan. Please call Sublette County Public Health at

307-367-2157 for more information.
