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. While all contributors are interested in wider access to life-saving naloxone and overdose prevention education, none have any financial relationship to the companies that manufacture it nor delivery devices currently available or under development.
