Take Home Naloxone Program

About the Program

Since January 2016, pharmacies have been able to participate in the Take Home Naloxone Program funded by Alberta Health and developed by Alberta Health Services.

Despite the schedule change, program requirements to dispense and be reimbursed for providing provincially funded Take Home Naloxone (THN) kits by pharmacists remains unchanged.  Click her to read the full announcement.
