Accessing Naloxone or Narcan Kits and Additional Resources

In Nova Scotia and across Canadian provinces, you can access a Naloxone or Narcan kit (medication to reverse an opioid overdose) free of charge at your local pharmacy with no personal identification collected.

If you are a member of the Dalhousie and Kings community, you can also access a Naloxone kit through a Nursing appointment at Student Health & Wellness Centre on the Halifax campus, or at your local pharmacy.
