NaloxoFind enables anyone to find Naloxone carriers in an Emergency. Naloxone (commonly known under the brand Narcan or Evzio) when administered quickly after an opioid overdose can significantly reduce or stop the effects of the opioids.
Using naloxone is not a substitute for emergency medical care. Always get emergency medical care during an overdose or suspected overdose.
NaloxoFind lets users register as carriers or use the app to find carriers in an emergency. If a carrier is nearby they will be alerted when any nearby naloxone request is made. The app allows carriers to quickly see where the emergency is and get directions using their smartphone. If the requestor has entered their phone number (usually done on app install, prior to the emergency) the naloxone carrier will also receive the number and can call the requestor.
NaloxoFind is currently in an open beta period until there are enough carriers registered in each area to support finding Naloxone in an emergency.
