Naloxone Saturation Convening


Over the past year, Minnesota has taken several steps to increase access to the life-saving opioid antagonist naloxone, including mandating naloxone in additional settings such as schools, jails, and treatment centers, and with law enforcement; creating a centralized distribution portal for mandated groups to access no-cost naloxone; and a historic investment in harm reduction dollars. These factors combine to create a dynamic naloxone saturation situation in Minnesota, with new opportunities and challenges.

On Tuesday, May 7, 2024, the Department of Human Services and the Department of Health, in partnership with the Minnesota Office of Addiction and Recovery, will host a day-long event to bring together community partners to help inform a statewide naloxone saturation plan that outlines the strategies that will be used to get naloxone to Minnesotans in the quantity and format they need.

Once completed, the draft naloxone statewide distribution plan will be shared broadly for additional public and partner review and comment. The plan will be a living document which can be updated as new opportunities and challenges arise.

People who use drugs (PWUD) play a critical role in identifying emerging issues and possible solutions in developing harm reduction interventions. The state will support additional engagement activities to ensure PWUD inform the plan.

Because space is limited, the event is for invited participants. Join us at the InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. to provide information for the draft naloxone saturation plan.

The state has invited identified representatives from partner organizations and Tribal partners to participate in the convening.
