During the coronavirus outbreak, it may be particularly important to obtain naloxone. There is still a standing order in place for naloxone, so you should be able to get it at a pharmacy without a prescription (like a flu shot). Call your pharmacy beforehand to make sure they have it in stock. Naloxone may also be available through your local health department (for Pittsburgh, ACHD) or needle exchange (for Pittsburgh, PPP).
