Naloxone Distribution Project (NDP)

The Naloxone Distribution Project (NDP) is funded by SAMHSA and administered by DHCS to combat opioid overdose-related deaths throughout California. The NDP aims to address the opioid crisis by reducing opioid overdose deaths through the provision of free naloxone, in its nasal spray formulation. Starting in October 2018, qualified organizations and entities will be able to request free naloxone from DHCS.

To ensure your request for free naloxone is approved, please carefully review the NDP FAQ & the terms and conditions outlined in the NDP Application prior to submitting your completed application to DHCS for review & consideration.

Eligible entities and organizations to administer or distribute naloxone through a California Public Health standing order, and to individuals with a valid prescription include, but are not limited to:

• First responders
• Emergency medical services
• Fire authorities
• Law enforcement, courts, & criminal justice partners
• Veteran organizations
• Homeless programs
• Schools & universities
• Libraries
