How to introduce naloxone as part of harm reduction in homelessness services
Naloxone in homelessness services
Provision of naloxone is an evidence-based intervention that can save lives. This guidance explains its role in overdose prevention; the context of drug-related deaths and homelessness that makes naloxone so relevant to this sector; and the practical steps needed to introduce naloxone in your service.
The guidance was updated in spring 2020 to reflect the introduction of nasal naloxone.
