124 kits of nasal naloxone are being distributed to our five Project Safe Neighborhoods partner police departments - Woonsocket, Central Falls, Pawtucket, Providence and Cranston. The kits will be distributed by patrol officers in areas where a significant number of overdoses are occurring. The kits will be provideds without asking the recipients’ personal information. Each kit has an Anchor Recovery label with a QR code that provides Anchor Recovery’s pertinent information and a short video on how to use naloxone. This initiative is designed to reduce overdose deaths, encourage peer-to-peer support, and improve police / community relations.
