The Wolf Administration announced it will be providing free naloxone at 95 locations across the state to any Pennsylvanian who wants it as part of the administration’s ongoing effort to reduce the number of opioid overdoses and to get residents into treatment.
According to Skook News, one of those locations will be in Schuylkill County. Naloxone is a medication that does not harm the individual it is administered to, and is used to reverse an overdose caused by an opioid.
Distributions will primarily take place at state health centers and county/municipal health departments on Wednesday, September 18, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Wednesday, September 25, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., as supplies last.
In Schuylkill County, the distribution will take place at the Schuylkill Health Center located at 1 Norwegian Plaza in Suite 103, in Pottsville.
