The Naloxone Work Group focuses on increasing awareness of and access to the opioid overdose reversing drug naloxone in the State of Colorado and making clinical, organizational, and public policy recommendations to achieve this goal.

The Naloxone Work Group’s goals for 2016-17 are to:

  • Establish naloxone access for first-responders statewide;
  • Establish naloxone prescribing programs in Emergency Departments statewide;
  • Increase naloxone uptake by pharmacies and pharmacists;
  • Increase naloxone awareness and uptake among primary care providers;
  • Increase access to naloxone in Colorado jails;
  • Increase public awareness and education resources of naloxone rescue; and
  • Increase access to naloxone through Harm Reduction organizations, residential, and outpatient treatment facilities.

The Naloxone Work Group meets every other month (in person and by remote conferencing). The current work group roster, most recent meeting minutes, and upcoming meeting schedule are available on the left-hand side of this page.
