The Take Home Naloxone (THN) Program started in 2017 based on an increase in overdoses reported throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. In partnership with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, SWAP began the distribution of Naloxone kits and training free of charge through various community organizations and health authorities around Newfoundland and Labrador.
While we encourage people to visit SWAP directly to get Naloxone trained, you can also become trained online. If and after you’ve completed the training online, you can visit SWAP or dial 8-1-1 to find your nearest distribution site to obtain a free Naloxone kit.
We recommend following these links to get Naloxone trained:
