State to give away anti-overdose drug naloxone next week

Pennsylvania is expanding efforts to make the anti-overdose medication naloxone available to the public with a statewide distribution day next week.

Officials said Thursday that naloxone will be provided free to any state resident at 80 locations — most of them state, county and municipal health offices — from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Dec. 13.

The drug is also regularly available at most pharmacies in Pennsylvania, at little or no cost for those with insurance.
