he distribution program is known as ‘Stop Overdoses in PA- Get Help Now.’
“We really view this as a coordinated effort to get Naloxone out into the public,” Governor Tom Wolf said.
The governor remains adamant that addiction is a disease, not a moral failing. He says nearly 3,000 people have been revived with Naloxone and then put into a treatment program.
The Butler County State Health Center is located inside the Monarch Building, (in the same area that houses children’s schooling and family pathways) Suite 201. The distribution hours are from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.
Since November 2014, more than 20,000 people have been revived with naloxone by police officers and EMS providers in Pennsylvania.
In addition to being able to get naloxone for free on Dec. 13, it is available at most pharmacies across the state year-round. Naloxone is available to many with public and private insurance at pharmacies for free or at a low cost.
