Washington County now part of the Naloxone Access Points network
Washington County is now part of the Naloxone Access Points (NAP) network that provides naloxone kits. Anyone from the community can get a naloxone kit and fentanyl test strips for free and anonymously at any of the service center locations in Washington County. No insurance or personal information is needed.
The kits may be found at the Public Health & Environment offices at:
The NAP kits are meant for personal use and are not intended to be distributed at an organizational level due to limited supply.
This initiative aims to save lives by:
Enhancing the availability of essential resources like naloxone and fentanyl test strips.
Fostering an environment without stigma or judgment related to substance use.
Furthermore, aside from directly improving access to life-saving tools, this effort will also promote naloxone as a common public health resource, contributing to the reduction of stigma connected to substance use.
