Health, dignity, & liberation for all
Overdose Prevention & Naloxone Distribution
We partner with mutual aid, health departments, inpatient treatment programs, recovery groups, and direct service organizations to integrate naloxone distribution into their regular outreach or participant services. We also collaborate to host “pop-up” overdose education and naloxone distribution events in collaboration with local organizations.
Training & Technical Assistance (TA)
Join us on the third Thursday of every month for a free virtual training on identifying and responding to an overdose. Register today!
We are able to tailor the following trainings to your group or organization’s needs:
- Introduction to Harm Reduction
- Overdose Education & Naloxone Distribution (OEND) for Peers
- Overdose Reversal Training for Providers
Training fees are on a sliding-scale basis — that way, organizations with a budget to compensate trainers can help subsidize trainings for those working with a smaller budget or mutual aid and volunteer-based organizations.

Harm reduction is essential. A harm reduction approach to drug use is the best strategy we have to end the overdose crisis, reduce risks associated with drug use, and affirm the dignity and bodily autonomy of every New Jerseyan.
