Posted 8/11/2022

This pre-recorded webinar describes how states can support Naloxone distribution, including the various funding streams used for this effort—Bureau of Justice Assistance's COSSAP, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Overdose Data to Action, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's State Opioid Response—and then discuss the barriers and facilitators toward distributing Naloxone through vending machines in jail facilities. During this webinar, the presenters will: provide some understanding of why Naloxone distribution to returning citizens is important; describe the barriers and facilitators toward the distribution of naloxone through vending machines; give insight into multiple federal funding sources being used to purchase vending machines and the various types of products that communities are distributing.
