Naloxone (Narcan) is an opioid overdose reversal medication used to reverse an opioid-induced overdose. NETCHD provides FREE Narcan to community members who are at risk of a possible overdose, live with someone at risk, and/or work or volunteer with populations at risk for overdose.

Get Naloxone/Narcan mailed to you for FREE anywhere in Washington State. 

Washington State Department of Health (DOH) has noticed an increase in public schools requesting naloxone. Section 39.2.C of SB 5380, passed in 2019, requires school districts with 2,000 or more students to have naloxone on site at each of its high schools. DOH’s understanding is that Emergent BioSolutions (makers of NARCAN) had renewed filling requests through their Free Naloxone for Schools and Libraries Program. Naloxone requests through this can be done from this site, however it is currently a waiting list. Local schools can purchase naloxone directly from pharmacies or medical suppliers. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact DOH naloxone program at: or Northeast Tri County Health District.

In WA State, anyone trying to help in a medical emergency is generally protected from civil liabilities by RCW 4.24.300. WA State’s 911 Good Samaritan Overdose Law RCW 69.50.315 gives additional, specific protections against drug possession charges:

  • If you seek medical assistance in a drug-related overdose, you cannot be prosecuted for drug possession.
  • The overdose victim is also protected from drug possession charges.
  • Anyone in WA State who might have or witness an opioid overdose is allowed to carry and administer naloxone. (RCW 69.41.095)
