Narcan at your doorstep

Delaware’s Division of Public Health (DPH) has partnered with NEXT Distro, a nonprofit organization, to provide Narcan at no cost through the mail to Delaware residents who might not otherwise have access to it. The goal is to remove barriers to obtaining this lifesaving medication, which can reverse an opioid overdose.

A 2019 study by the Delaware Drug Overdose Fatality Review Commission found that 79% of the fatal overdoses it reviewed happened in a home. The commission also found that in 93% of the fatal overdoses it studied, Narcan was not available.

NEXT Distro - Stay alive, stay safe.

This program seeks to reverse that trend. Follow these steps to obtain Narcan through the NEXT Harm Reduction program:

  • Go to NextDistro.org/Delaware.
  • Watch the Narcan training video.
  • Take the post-video test.
  • Fill out a request form.
  • Receive Narcan in the mail at no charge.
  • Download Delaware’s free OpiRescueDE app.

If you request Narcan, please download the free OpiRescueDE app. The app offers step-by-step instructions on how to use Narcan. It also allows you to anonymously report an opioid overdose reversal, which helps get the medication into more hands.
