carrynaloxONe toolkit

The carrynaloxONe toolkit supports Ontario public health units in carrying out their mandate under the Harm Reduction Program Enhancement Initiative funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. This initiative has expanded the distribution of naloxone through the Ontario Naloxone Program and aims to reach people who use drugs where they are.

public health units serve as naloxone distribution hubs for eligible community based organizations, which include shelters, outreach organizations, AIDS service organizations, community health centres, Aboriginal health access centres, and withdrawal management programs.

Through these organizations, naloxone is distributed on an ongoing basis to individuals at risk of an opioid overdose, or family and friends of individuals at risk of opioid overdose. Public health units also distribute naloxone to police and fire services.

This toolkit is being developed by the Ontario HIV and Substance Use Training Program with support from the Provincial System Support Program at CAMH.
