Opioid Overdose Response Kits in Alaska
In 2016, Alaska passed legislation that helped increase access to naloxone, the life-saving medication used in response to an opioid overdose. With the help of the State of Alaska’s Project HOPE, ANTHC provides Overdose Response Kits (naloxone) via iknowmine.org to Alaska-based addresses.
What is naloxone?
Naloxone is a medicine that can quickly reverse an opioid overdose. Naloxone knocks opioids and heroin off the brain’s opioid receptors, reversing the effects of the opioid and allowing the person to breathe again. Narcan® and Kloxxado® are brand names of the naloxone medication available as a nasal spray. Narcan® contains 4 milligrams (mg) of naloxone and Kloxxado® contains 8 mg of naloxone. These kits will contain either Narcan® or Kloxxado® nasal spray and product-specific information will be mailed with each kit.
What are opioids?
Opioids include many prescription pain relievers. Heroin, an illegal drug, is also an opioid. Fentanyl is a legally prescribed opioid that is also frequently produced illegally in the black market. Made from the opium poppy plant, or produced artificially to have a similar effect, all opioids affect the brain’s regions that produce feelings of reward. Opioids activate the brain’s opioid receptors and reduce pain by attaching to these receptors, reducing the perception of pain.
