An opioid overdose is a MEDICAL EMERGENCY!

If you suspect someone has overdosed call 9-1-1 immediately.

In 2017 the Montana Legislature passed House Bill (HB) 333, the  Help Save Lives from Overdose Act, with the stated purpose of "sav[ing] the lives of persons who have experienced an opioid-related drug overdose by providing the broadest possible access to lifesaving opioid antagonist medication.”  The act directs DPHHS to increase the availability and distribution of naloxone, an opioid antagonist, through a statewide  standing order.
