Naloxone Saves Lives

According to Michigan Law, any individual can obtain naloxone without a prescription to have in their home for emergencies. This can be for a risk to you or a family member. Private insurance, Medicaid and other insurances will cover the cost.

Naloxone can be available through your pharmacy. Livingston County Community Mental Health Authority also has naloxone available for people without insurance or for those at risk.

Funding is made available by Michigan Institute for Clinical Health Research UL1TR000433, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Community Mental Health Partnership of Southeast Michigan.

If you need to obtain naloxone, you may come to the Livingston County CMH Authority East Complex onsite Genoa Pharmacy. They can release naloxone kits directly to you.
