What is NaloxBox?

The NaloxBox mission is to improve the capacity of bystander rescuers of an opiate overdose to save a life by strategically placing these innovative smart cabinets in settings most in need of quickly accessible, public use naloxone.

Each NaloxBox contains 4 doses of the potent antidote for opiate overdose named naloxone (brand name NarcanĀ®), a mask for giving rescue breaths, and information on how to obtain personal naloxone and how to access addiction treatment.

We are looking to scale-up this effort far beyond the 48 pilot units supported by a generous grant from the RI Department of Public Health.

If you would like to be a partner in the NaloxBox mission either by hosting a NaloxBox/ NaloxBoxes, or by sponsoring this work, please contact NaloxBox founders Geoff Capraro, MD, MPH and Claudia Rebloa, PhD at: naloxboxproject@gmail.com

We will be building our website soon, so please visit again to learn more about the effort!
