Opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone to be free at Planned Parenthood

CLAREMONT — Planned Parenthood of Northern New England is now offering the opioid overdose reversal drug naloxone at two of its New Hampshire clinics, the organization announced in a Tuesday news release.

The medication, also known by the trade name Narcan, will be provided at no cost to New Hampshire residents during appointments at Planned Parenthood clinics in Claremont and Keene, N.H., as part of pilot project through The Doorway, a statewide hub-and-spoke program aimed at improving people’s access to addiction treatment.

The naloxone will be provided in the form of a nasal spray, which works to block the effects of opioids.

While the organization has largely moved to telehealth visits during the COVID-19 pandemic, it continues to provide in-person services when necessary at its clinics.

The organization has five clinics in New Hampshire and 12 in Vermont, including one in White River Junction.
