Fentanyl is much more powerful than heroin, so these overdoses happen quickly and are harder to reverse. You might need more than one dose of Naloxone to reverse a Fentanyl overdose. Every minute counts, call 9-1-1 if you think it’s an overdose. Learn about the dangers of fentanyl.

Learn about the NaloxBox

NaloxBoxes are a new resource for helping someone who might have accidentally overdosed.

The NaloxBox includes naloxone, a medicine that reverses the overdose, and a mask so that you can give rescue breaths until emergency help arrives. The NaloxBox stores these life-saving tools in public places and community organizations, that means bystanders can give naloxone right away. Read more about NaloxBoxes in Rhode Island.
