About Us

Prescribe to Prevent was compiled by several naloxone access and overdose prevention advocates because we have individually been receiving inquiries from providers who want to make naloxone available to their patients, but don’t know how to do it.

PrescribeToPrevent.org does not receive funds or other support from any manufacturer of any component of naloxone rescue kits, nor does PrescribeToPrevent.org endorse specific products. We mention manufacturers only to facilitate access. To our knowledge, we describe all available sources of the components of naloxone rescue kits. Except as disclosed below, the contributors do not receive financial compensation associated with naloxone drug development, naloxone delivery device development, or any other medication development for the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of opioid overdose.
