Evaluation of the Take-Home Naloxone Demonstration Project

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    Naloxone is an opioid antagonist which counteracts the effects of opioids and can bring an overdose patient back to consciousness in minutes following its administration. The Take Home Naloxone (THN) demonstration project involved providing drug users, and their family and friends, with training in the administration of naloxone, as well as instruction on first-aid, following the discovery of an overdose event. THN kits are issued to opiate users who complete the training. The key aim of the demonstration project was to reduce drug-related deaths in Wales. This document presents the main findings of the evaluation of the THN demonstration project
